Episode 27: Happy New Birding Year!
The lads gab about a huge array of topics, including their first birds of the year, their birding resolutions, planning the (bird) garden, gearing up for 2018 birding events, seeking the chalk-dusted barley hopper, and some wildly disparate music recommendations.
Episode 26: Winter Birding Rocks SO Hard!
As they pass the quarter-century mark for episodes, the fellas sit inside on a snowy day and chat about winter birding, the recent Rock & Roll Reader Rendezvous in Cleveland, Jen Brumfield's record-setting county Big Year, the treasures held by the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, snowy owls, spark birds and spark jobs, Balto the wonder dog, and Audubon's cackling goose. Bill's RockHall music recommedation is to listen to Prince's guitar solo on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps." And, as an aside, Ben is getting back into optics retail.
Episode 25: Live From Whipple, Ohio
Ben and Bill recorded this episode while sitting outside in southeastern Ohio. They chat about Ben's recent experiences at the Rio Grande Valley Birding Festival in Texas, and the upcoming events at the Space Coast Birding Festival in Florida. Nemesis birds, missed rarities, hoped-for sightings, smelly vans, dump birding, birding skill-building and field-sketching workshops, Tamaulipas and Rain Crows, and shooting video versus recording an audio podcast are all topics that arise in this episode. Then, Bill drove Ben to the airport.
