She also talks about The Big Year and what that has meant for birding.
Early in the show, Joe Warren talks about southward migration and what to do to attract the migrants to your yard. Host Chris Bosak reads from an old book whereby Roger Tory Peterson wrote the first chapter. Chris and co-host Mardi Dickinson also discuss what birds have been seen in the area recently and their experience with pelagic trips.
