Preventing Birds From Colliding With Windows with Dr. Christine Sheppard
Spooky! Scary! Happy Halloween! Celebrate Halloween with us as we tell a scary story about the Baobhan Sith of the Scottish Highlands and learn how to make a pumpkin bird feeder. Also in this episode: an interview with Dr. Christine Sheppard from the American Bird Conservancy about how to make your glass windows safe for birds; a discussion about why it's so important to leave the leaves; and a talk about the International Dark-Sky Association's efforts to keep the nighttime skies dark to benefit wildlife. Join host Catherine Greenleaf, a certified wildlife rehabilitator with 20 years of experience rescuing and rehabilitating injured wildlife, for twice-monthly discussions on restoring native habitat to help the birds in your backyard.
