It’s the last Thursday in February and that means it’s time for This Month in Birding! We’re pleased to welcome some birding friends to talk about the birding news of the month, and in this month maybe more than most, we need each other. February’s winning panel consists of Jennie Duberstein of Sonoran Joint Venture, Jordan Rutter of the American Bird Conservancy, and Brodie Cass Talbott of Portland Audubon, who come ready to talk about owl ethics, the debunking of the Patagonia Picnic Table Effect, bird extinctions, and more.
Articles to topics discussed:
