Episode 17: Smart, Social Birds and Things That Can Kill You

Are we humans really on top of the food chain? Recent research and stories from the field may tell us we're not. The two Birding Bs talk about smart birds (ravens), soulful birds (jays and hawks), voracious insects, the smell of a herd of elk in heat, dangerous moments in nature, and much more. Bill also has a cool music recommendation for our listeners: Jake La Botz.

Episode 16: Birds as Symbols

The guys talk about the many ways birds are symbolic for humans. From the U.S. national symbol (the bald eagle) to a fight over the Oregon state bird, to wise owls, canaries in coal mines, beer labels, and bird tattoos, the guys cover topics like a sleeve of tatts covers your arm. Then Ben goes to a waterpark and we're waiting to see if he survived.
