Birder, retired family physician, and podcaster at The Bird Banter Podcast.
On the 100th!!! numbered episode of The Bird Banter Podcast I talk with  father-daughter birders Scott and Sierra Downes.  There are lots of birding families, but IMO lots more birders who have not been  blessed with children who become avid birders.  We talk about birding together, as well as their travels and experiences.  Sierra was the recipient of the Patrick Sullivan Young Birders Award and plans to attend the BSBO Camp Chiricahua this summer, Covid allowing. Be sure to check out the blog post with more details on this episode.
On this episode I talk with avid eBirder, San Juan County, WA birder, longtime Yellow Island resident, and bird song audio recording enthusiast Phil Green. He has an interesting story and I hope you enjoy getting to know Phil as much as I did on this episode.   Here is a link to Phil's Yellow Island Blog.  Here is his eBird profile.  Check out the Bird Banter blog post for more details.  Thanks for listening. Good birding and good day!
This is an episode I do solo without a guest. I try to talk about my experience on a recent family trip to Costa Rica.  The challenge of focusing on important time with family while being lured into birding a very birdy habitat was ever present.  Check out the blog post on the Bird Banter website to see photos and more details about the trip. Here are links to contact the guides I used, Carlos Ureña and Andres Chinchilla. I’ll be back soon with a more usual episode with a guest.  Until then, good birding and good day!
On this episode I talk with Jordan Boersma.  Jordan is without a doubt the first guest I know of who has had to avoid pirates to get to an island expedition, though John Sterling did worry about cannibals in one of his early work experiences that he talks about on the podcast. Jordan is working on his PhD at Washington State University, and we talk about his study of testosterone levels in female White-shouldered Fairywrens, ice worms and Gray-crowned Rosy Finches on Mt. Rainier and more.  Enjoy. See Jordan's website to look at his research or contact him via Twitter @jordan_boresma  Until next time. Good birding. Good day!
