Evening Grosbeak: The Forest Wanderer
In today's episode, we discuss how to handle the territorial aggression of songbirds around your home. We also get the latest updates on the avian flu situation from New Hampshire State Veterinarian Dr. Stephen Crawford and Daniel Bergeron, Chief of the Wildlife Division at the New Hampshire Fish & Game Department. To report sick or dead wild birds in New Hampshire call New Hampshire Fish & Game Dispatch at (603) 271-3361. To report sick or dead domesticated ducks or chickens call (603) 271-2404. And finally, we will hear about the natural history of the Evening Grosbeak, one of the most beautiful birds in the finch family. Join Catherine Greenleaf, a certified wildlife rehabilitator with 20 years of experience rescuing and rehabilitating injured wildlife, for twice-monthly discussions about restoring native habitat and helping the birds in your backyard.
