Behind the Finch Forecast with Tyler Hoar
November 11, 2021
The annual Winter Finch Forecast is easily one of the highlights of the birding year for many, and a perfect combination of birding science and birding art. When Ron Pittaway retired in early 2020, birders worried that the forecast would be retired as well, but that was happily not the case. Tyler Hoar stepped in and with the help of the Finch Research Network, brought the forecast into the 21st Century. He joins us to talk about how it all works and what it was like filling the shoes of a birding giant.
Plus, come join us as we reveal the 2022 Bird of the Year at a party in Philadelphia!
