Kenn Kaufman is one of America’s best known birders, and he has done just about everything a person can do in the birding world. He’s a guide, an artist, an incredibly skilled birder, and an author of several books, the latest of which is called A Season on the Wind: Inside the World of Spring Migration. Kenn’s new book is a love letter to northwest Ohio, a compelling story about the phenomenon of migration, and a call for action to protect these extraordinary birds and these important places. He joins me to talk about the book and all things spring.

Also, why you should be leading bird walks (seriously), dipping tales from Florida, and a big podcast event at the Biggest Week that you will not want to miss!
