American Birding Podcast: Bird Glamour with Lisa Buckley

How many of you out there have dressed as a bird for Halloween? Many, I’m sure! But there is obviously so much more that can be done in the realm of bird costuming, and Dr. Lisa Buckley has taken bird inspired cosplay to its logical extreme. In her day job she is a vertebrate paleontologist in British Columbia but on the side she has created Bird Glamour, eye makeup inspired by a whole host of birds. She’s a singularly appropriate person to chat with on Halloween and she joins me to talk about how birds inspire a very unique form of art.

Also, the ear-splitting White Bellbird and your bird costumes, included below!

Thanks to Turismo de Lisboa for sponsoring this episode.

The costumes mentioned in the program can be found below.
