My So-Called Lifer: Ornithology in High School with Steve Maguire

September 17, 2020

Most people perceive ornithology as a college course, one of those science electives that can get people into birding long-term. But what if we brought it down to high school and appealed to more students from more backgrounds? That’s the goal of high school teacher Steve Maguire, who has been teaching ornithology in a Massachusetts high school for several years. He joins host Nate Swick to talk about his experiences.

Also, a Migratory Bird Treaty update and Nate teaches you how to be a wicked pisher.
