February 2, 2021

On The Bird Banter Podcast #90 Cameron Cox and I talk about lots of things, but maybe the most interesting to me was to hear about his philosophy on bird identification and the ways birders can learn more advanced bird ID.  He has a lot of experience at identification of birds in flight, and we talk about how birders can improve that skill set.  Of course there is a lot of less technical birding talk too. Enjoy.

Good birding and good day!
