How many of you out there have dressed as a bird for Halloween? Many, I’m sure! But there is obviously so much more that can be done in the realm of bird costuming, and Dr. Lisa Buckley has taken bird inspired cosplay to its logical extreme. In her day job she is a vertebrate paleontologist in British Columbia but on the side she has created Bird Glamour, eye makeup inspired by a whole host of birds. She’s a singularly appropriate person to chat with on Halloween and she joins me to talk about how birds inspire a very unique form of art.

Also, the ear-splitting White Bellbird and your bird costumes, included below!

The costumes mentioned in the program can be found below.

The American Birding Podcast brings together staff and friends of the American Birding Association as we talk about birds, birding, travel and conservation in North America and beyond.

Join host Nate Swick every other Thursday for news and happenings, recent rarities, guests from around the birding world, and features of interest to every birder.
