On this episode, Missy shows us how to set up a branch with a tree stand to create a natural looking studio to photograph birds. Dr. Bird answers a question about someone seeing less birds and their feeders and different reasons why that might happen. This week’s EnviroMinute challenge is to recycle old and unused clothing by bringing it to a local charity. If you don’t have a local charity, I can provide some resources for some online. In the headlines, fritted glass for the new Bell Museum in Minnesota helps save energy and reduce bird collisions. The plant based poison 1080 is being used in New Zealand and is really helping a lot of endangered species by keeping the rodent population down. And a multi-million dollar renovation project in Hawaii is put on hold because a White Tern was spotted nesting in one of the construction areas.
Enjoy the show!
