This Month in Birding – February 2023

February 23, 2023

February might be the shortest month, but that doesn’t mean it gets the short shrift when it comes to This Month in Birding. We’ve got a great panel this month that absolutely adores birds as is appropriate for the season. Jody Allair from Birds Canada, Sarah Bloemers of the Bird Sh*t Podcast, and our friend Nick Lund, the Birdist, join us to talk about Steller’s Jay splits, Hawaiian Island Restoration, the possible return of the Dodo, and much more!
