Birdwatching

Birdwatching, or birding, is a form of wildlife observation in which the observation of birds is a recreational activity or citizen science. It can be done with the naked eye, through a visual enhancement device like binoculars and telescopes, by listening for bird sounds, or by watching public webcams.

      Snipe Hunt - BirdNote

      One of the most ethereal of spring sounds is that made by the Wilson's Snipe. Much as if they were playing a reed instrument, the male snipe produces a winnowing sound in flight by metering, with his wings, the flow of air over his tail-feathers. Among the most venerable of practical jokes anywhere

      Episode 90: Bruce Wunderlich, Master of BirdTography - Out There With the Birds

      If you have admired the appearance of Bird Watcher's Digest, it is Bruce Wunderlich, our production director, who should get the credit. Bruce lays out each issue of BWD and its sister publication, Watching Backyard Birds, places the ads and photos, builds the table of contents, and otherwise assembles each issue. He is also a professional and award-winning bird photographer, and many of his magnificent photos appear on the pages of both magazines. He also contributes the BirdTography column in each issue of BWD. Listen in as BWD editor Dawn Hewitt interviews her colleague and friend in this episode of Out There With the Birds.

      #96 Meet My Garden Birds, Hampshire, U.K. - The Casual Birder Podcast

      This week’s episode was originally created for International Podcast Month, September 2020, and released on their podcast feed.   Over the past year, many of us have been seeking solace in nature. As I have remained at home much of the time since the lockdowns began, my garden birds have provided interest and distraction.  In episode 96, I provide an audio portrait of the 13 bird species that regularly visited my garden during 2020, including:   - what they look like,  - how they sound, and   - some of the behaviours and interactions I've noticed. If you live in the UK, this episode will help you to identify some of the more common birds found in our gardens and parks. Wherever you live, I hope it will encourage you to look more closely at your own local birds, and maybe consider keeping a journal of their appearance and behaviours.

      05-14: A World on the Wing with Scott Weidensaul - American Birding Podcast

      Migratory birds undertake some of the most extraordinary and exhausting undertaking of any living things on the planet, an endurance test made all the more difficult by climate change, habitat loss, and illegal hunting. Few know this better than Scott Weidensaul, a bird researcher, prolific nature writer, and the author of more than 30 books, mostly about birds. He first tackled bird migration with 2000’s Living on the Wind. He comes back to the topic with a new book A World on the Wing: The Global Odyssey of Migratory Birds, out this month. He joins Nate Swick to talk about the new book and the the limits of bird migration.  ABA members are eligible for a 15% discount to Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Birds of the World subscription.
