Birding Stories from ABA Friends

December 3, 2020

Nate Swick is out of the studio this week so we’re sending you a mini-cast to enjoy while he’s gone. This one features a pair of ABA friends telling stories of great birding days, one high intensity and one low.

First, ABA webmaster Greg Neise shares the tale of his epic Illinois Big Day run. Spills, thrills, and warbling trills take stage as Greg and his teammates race the clock and the previous record.

And then, high schooler Hannah Floyd shares the joys of winter birding during a pandemic. You might expect either of those concerns to be hindrances, but that’s not the case.

While I’ve got you here, please check out the ABA’s Year-End Appeal going on now. It’s been a strange year but if the ABA or this podcast has provided you with any joy in 2020, please consider making a donation.
