Ray Brown’s Talkin’ Birds does a show from Massachusetts every Sunday at 9:30 AM and it’s all about birding. Every week they play the call of a “mystery bird” and give a few hints as to what it is, then people call in to guess. Whoever guesses the correct bird first wins a $90 thistle feeder that’s squirrel proof.
AND TODAY I WON.
The bird was a Parasitic Jaeger (which I’ve never seen before) and I had to look it up to be sure, but it was probably the most exciting thing that’s happened to me in quite awhile. So, go on the website in a day or two and listen to today’s (9/18/11) show to hear me on the radio! It’s also a podcast and a great show, so follow them on tumblr and tune in!
Here’s the bird that got me my feeder :)
