The latest episode of the American Birding Podcast is ready to go, and this time it’s all about our 2017 Bird of the Year, Ruddy Turnstone.
I share a conversation I had with scientist, author, and 2017 BOY artist Sophie Webb, whose image of Ruddy Turnstones will be featured on the cover of the February 2017 issue of Birding magazine. We discuss turnstones, art, and what she looks for in her role as a Young Birder of the Year judge.
We also want to hear your Ruddy Turnstone stories! One of the wonderful things about this bird is that you can find them just about anywhere in the world. We’d love to collect some stories to share in a future episode of the American Birding Podcast, so please share them here, or in our various social media channels.
Thanks for listening!
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.
