Episode 118: True Nature: The Grass Lounge, by Julie Zickefoose

Episode 117: Identify Yourself: Pacific Shearwaters, by Alvaro Jaramillo
Autumn is an ideal time to take a pelagic trip—a boat ride into deeper waters off shore. Many birders make such a Pacific pilgrimage, and bird ID guru Alvaro Jaramillo helps distinguish among the shearwaters: sooty, pink-footed, Buller’s, black-vented, flesh-footed and short-tailed. Featured in Bird Watcher's Digest September/October 2018.
Episode 116: Shouldn't Your Bird Dog Be Bigger Than the Bird? by Al Batt
