Tuning into Ray Brown’s Talkin’ Birds Tomorrow

1455828928207Some of you may already know that I’m a regular contributor to the Ray Brown’s Talkin’ Birds radio show based out of Massachusetts on WATD. My twice-monthly segment, “Charlotte’s Web-log”, features young birder activities and events, my latest sightings, and this year is focusing on the U.S. National Park Service centennial and its Every Kid in a Park Initiative.

Tomorrow’s broadcast has a special guest lined up — my good friend Jody Allair, who is a biologist and science educator for Bird Studies Canada. Jody will be talking with Ray about the results of this year’s Great Backyard Bird Count earlier this month.

You can follow Jody on Twitter and his amazing Instagram account.

Ray Brown’s Talkin’ Birds airs Sunday mornings at 9:30 am Eastern standard time on WATD. If you live in Canada, or in another part of the United States, you can listen to the show through the WATD website on their live streaming player. If you aren’t able to listen live, you can always download the latest episodes from the Talkin’ Birds website or iTunes.

I hope you’re able to tune into the show tomorrow!

The Great Backyard Bird Count

The Great Backyard Bird Count starts next week, from Friday, February 17th to Monday, February 20th. You can do a stationary count or a traveling count, and can count for as little as 15 minutes. The GBBC is a joint project of Audubon, The Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and Canadian partner Bird Studies Canada. A few bird photos I took at my grandparents’ house last week,
