The Backyard Naturalist is a podcast about anything and everything related to nature. This week, Debbie and Laurie have a conversation around some of the weird and off the wall myths about birds they’ve heard lately. Some of which include, is the phrase “bird brain” really an insult? How about does touching a baby bird really cause the mother to abandon it and, are birds monogamous?
We’d like to give a shout out to one of our loyal listeners, Craig. He offered the idea for this week’s show and even performed a little of the research. To thank Craig, we’re giving hi a free Squirrel Buster Bird Feeder from Brome. If you have an idea for an upcoming episode, hit us up on our Facebook page or leave a comment at thebackyardnaturalists.com.
During the show, you hear Debbie mention a wonderful read, The Genius of Birds by Jennifer Ackerman.
