American Birding Podcast: Birding Without Tears 2, Birding & Kids with Bryony Angell

When Birding editor Ted Floyd and I did our first Birding Without Tears episode a few weeks ago we were called to the carpet by the fact that we were only telling half of the story. Ted and I are both birding dads and our experiences are similar but not exactly like, those of birding moms, and there’s no better time to revisit this topic than during our Nesting Season Appeal anyway! To help tell the rest of the story, I’m joined by Seattle-based writer Bryony Angell, who draws on her experience as a birding mom and her past as a birding kid to offer insight into a topic that many birders deal with at some point–“how do I get my kids to go birding and all of us have a good experience?”

Also, birding in the news! Recent articles in the New York Times and Outside Magazine cast birding in a positive light.

A listener asks for advice for a new birder. Can we help him out! Send us tips you wish you knew when you started here in the comments, on Twitter or Facebook.

Thanks to episode sponsor, the Partnership for International Birding, combining 200 scheduled tours to destinations around the world with unmatched support for local bird conservation.
