The Bird Way with Jennifer Ackerman

May 7, 2020

Welcome to the new weekly American Birding Podcast!

Jennifer Ackerman is the New York Times best-selling author and essayist who wrote The Genius of Birds and a great many other science books. Her newest, out this week, is The Bird Way: A New Look at how Birds Talk, Work, Play, Parent, and Think. It’s a companion to that much loved earlier book, exploring the many creative, novel, and bizarre ways in which birds approach problems that they face and what that says about bird cognition and intelligence.

Also, a Cedar Waxwing story from Karina Li of Big Sky, Montana.
