The Winter That Wasn’t

Wednesday morning I listened to the CBC radio show, The Current, hosted by Anna Maria Tremonti.

Wednesday’s piece in the last half hour, “The Winter that Wasn’t: Bird Migration” in Canada, was especially interesting to me. The show featured lots of great interviews, including Professor Allen Hurlbert, who talked about how climate change may affect migration; Mike Burrell who is the Ontario regional editor for eBird; and Dick Cannings, a biologist who organizes many of the Canadian bird counts.

To listen to the show and hear the story, get the podcast at the CBC website. I would highly recommend it.

And here are a list of related stories from The Current’s “Winter That Wasn’t” web page:
