Later this month, birders and tour operators from across the globe will converge on Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for the 3rd American Birding Expo. This “World of Birding in One Place” is the brainchild of Bill Thompson III, editor of Birdwatcher’s Digest, author, podcaster, and pied piper of the North American birding community. Bill joins me to talk about the upcoming expo, the bird festival landscape in North America, and what birders attending the event can expect, up to and including zombies (not kidding).
Plus, I talk birding big storms and the hurricane paradox, and Birding editor Ted Floyd shares a commentary about the magic of birding in the mundaneness of normal life.
Resources referenced in this episode include Houston Audubon, eBird’s Live Map of Hurricane birds, and Ted Floyd’s essay on The ABA Blog.
