With the incredible and ambitious Merlin app, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology claims to be able to identify your mystery bird photos. Project Manager Drew Weber joins Nate Swick to talk about how it works and what kind of applications this program has for every birder.
Plus we discuss potential taxonomic changes coming down the pike from the American Ornithological Society, and Nate shares your Ruddy Turnstone stories as we continue to celebrate the 2017 Bird of the Year.
