Birdwatchradio.com casts program #9: If you haven’t heard one of Birdwatchradio.com’s podcasts it is definately time. September 10th’s episode celebrates Birdwatcher’s Digests’ 30th year and interviews Bill Thompson III, the magazine’s editor. Host Steve Moore also shares a wonderful story about his latest life bird.
We reviewed Birdwatchradio.com last February and they are doing a great job sharing information with the bird-loving community.
October Bird Festival: The 2008 Georgia’s Colonial Coast Birding & Nature Festival is coming up October 9 to October 13, Jekyll Island in Southeast Georgia. The event will have seminars on various topics from shorebird identification to digiscoping, plenty of great field trips and Pete Dunne will be the keynote speaker and will also lead a field trip. You can register online until September 22nd.
This is definitely a festival we would love to attend. Birding festivals are a fun, energetic way to raise money and awareness for the protection of our birds.
