A Way to Garden with Margaret Roach – Aug 20, 2018 – Ellen Blackstone of BirdNote on the Diets of Birds

I spent much of the summer transfixed by this year’s pair of phoebes who nested on the back porch as usual, and from a favorite low perch just across the way from there, launched themselves repeatedly into mid-air to catch insect after insect. 

How do birds get their food, and what do they eat, anyway? Well that depends on the bird, and Ellen Blackstone of BirdNote.org has some answers. A million people a day and more than 200 radio markets hear the 2-minute public radio show called Bird Note, and now “BirdNote” is a book too, which Ellen edited.
