A changing climate means a different world for many bird species, particularly seabirds which may find themselves exploring new paths over the top of a melting Arctic. Ocean researcher Seabird McKeon joins me to talk about one part of the massive global experiment we inadvertently find ourselves in, and what it could mean for birders in either ocean.
Also, I discuss the troubling news about a the plans for a border wall on Santa Ana NWR in south Texas. Birders have an opportunity to make their voices heard on this issue, and the ABA provides some guidance. We’ve also love to hear your #MySantaAna stories, tell us about your experiences in this special place.
