In this episode of Out There with the Birds, Bird Watcher’s Digest editor Dawn Hewitt interviews Katie Fallon. Katie is author of two acclaimed books, Cerulean Blues: A Personal Search for a Vanishing Songbird; and Vulture: The Private Life of an Unloved Bird; and two acclaimed books for children. She’s also writes for Bird Watcher’s Digest, penning the WINGBEATS column in two issues each year. She is also a co-founder of the Avian Conservation Center of Appalachia, a bird rehabilitation facility that takes in hundreds of ill or injured birds every year. In that capacity, she also cares for numerous non-releasable birds, including vultures, hawks, and even a peregrine falcon, which provide her with personal knowledge and insights most birders can’t even imagine.
