Ken revisits a show from last year with Ohio’s Birdman
Jim McCormac visits again to answer some questions.
- The sight of a robin used be the first sign of spring, but now I see them all year round. What’s up with that?
(Hint: exotic fruit -- and it’s dangerous.)
- Is it bad to feed birds in winter? Will that cause some birds to stop migrating?
- Do all birds migrate?
- What are some of the birds I might see passing though during winter migration? (Hint: Golden-crowned Kinglet, right, photo by Tim Daniel, Ohio Division of Wildlife.)
- I saw a crow with a white feather. Is that possible?
- What about those raptors – eagles, hawks, what do they find to eat in winter?
- North America’s counterpart to the biodiversity of Costa Rica is..?
Listen to this week’s show to discover the answers to those questions and learn a lot more about our feathered friends in winter.
