Episode 20: Hurricanes, Birds, and People
Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Ivan, Gloria, and others dominate the boys' conversation in this episode. They discuss the impact of severe storms on people, birds, and birding as well as the possible extinction of birds such as the Cozumel thrasher and the Barbuda warbler. Also discussed is how we birders can help weather-devastated communities with our ecotourism dollars in the future. Finally, Bill has a musical recommendation: "So You Want to Be an Outlaw," the new album from Steve Earle & the Dukes.
Episode 19: Live From the Lord Nelson Pub
The lads pause for a post-BirdFair beer and chat in the back garden of the Lord Nelson pub in charming Oakham, England. They touch on a plethora of topics, including English beer, customs, currency, conservation ethos, and English as a second English language. Plus they dance across other topics, including ecotourism, the political clout of birders, international travel, and the upcoming American Birding Expo.
Episode 18: Birding the Borders
The guys talk about birding along borders and why it's often so good. They also discuss how the proposed border wall in South Texas is a horrible thing for birds and nature and will ruin a great birding site.
