Birding Book Club – Best of 2023

December 7, 2023

The Birding Book Club is back again to do our annual Best Bird Books of the Year episode for 2023. With the holiday gift-giving season is right around the corner there’s no better time to give the gift of bird books to the birder in your life. And why not something for yourself while you’re at it? We are joined by 10,000 Birds book reviewer Donna Schulman and Birding magazine media and book review editor Rebecca Minardi to talk about what we loved this year in bird books.

Subscribe to the podcast at Apple PodcastsSpotify, or wherever you get your podcasts and please leave a rating or a review if you are so inclined! We appreciate it!
