The Secret Life of Rails with Auriel Fournier

October 8, 2020

Rails are a mysterious and enigmatic family, often requiring and rewarding effort. Researcher Auriel Fournier knows that more than most, and her work with rails in Missouri has shed some light on how these birds migrate, and how they use the landscape when they do. Auriel joins host Nate Swick to talk rallidae and STEM outreach for women. This interview was originally released on August 24, 2017.

Here’s the link to Paul Riss’s documentary Rare Bird Alert.

Also, Nate has some thoughts about wildlife illiteracy and rare bird reporting.
