08-16: Take it or Leave it – Seawatching, Records Committees, and Owls

April 18, 2024

Birders are full of strong opinions, some serious and some silly. In this new feature, we invite friends on to discuss the spiciest bird takes we can find to determine whether we Take it or Leave it. George Armistead and Amy Davis join host Nate Swick to talk about spark birds, seawatching, records committees, and whether we should share the locations of owls more frequently.
