This Month in Birding – September 2021

September 30, 2021

It’s the last episode of September 2021, and to add to this fall birding bounty comes a super panel featuring Birds Canada’s Jody Allair, the Finch Research Network’s Ryan Mandelbaum, and Jordan Rutter of the American Birding Conservancy. We’re excited to chat about this winter’s finch forecast, cutthroat birding, and some analysis of the Covid pandemic pause on birds in urban areas.
