08-28: Birding with Benefits, A Discussion

July 11, 2024

Birding with Benefits, a new book by author Sarah T Dubb, is a unique new addition to the birding canon. While we shouldn’t be too surprised that all the new attention paid to birding has seen it turn up in surprising places, but the pages of a romance novel certainly seemed like a stretch. To help discuss birding’s introduction into the romance genre, host Nate Swick turns to his own birding adjacent relationship and beach read enthusiast to talk about this unlikely intersection.

Also, SpaceX turns out to be a bad neighbor to birds in South Texas, according to The New York Times.
