For a lot of us gardeners, our connection to birds perhaps started with, or maybe even still centers on, putting up the bird feeder. Kathryn Schneider, wants to nurture us to move from bird watcher to birder, and her new book tells us how.
Kathryn is past president of the New York State Ornithological Association, has directed New York’s Natural Heritage Program, and conducted bird surveys for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Her new book is “Birding the Hudson Valley”, and she’s also one of us, a gardener.
We talked about some things you probably didn’t know about sparrows. things you can do to up your birding game, and more.
