A Wild Bird Chase, Part 1

Posted at 09:00 /shows/outings [link [Bookmark Link]]
Listen now:

[Ch'Hooly, the Western Screech Owl] This outings program takes us on outings organized as part of the Godwit Days Spring Migration Bird Festival in Arcata, California. Arcata can claim to be one of the top birding locations in the country.

In this part, Steve talks to Rob Hewitt, the festival organizer about the festival and his passion for birding. Steve sees his first bird of the festival right there in the main hall of Arcata's community center; Nichole Monty of the Humbolt Wildlife Care Center shows off her western screech owl, Ch'Hooly. Steve ends up on a hike in the Headwaters Forest Reserve in a quest to see a particularly difficult to find, endangered wild bird

In part 2, Steve continues on the hike and goes on another outing determined to see the bird.
