Go Adventure Mom 016 – Bird Nerds Unite: The National Audubon Society

Today we are talking about birds! Birds can add excitement and depth to all of your outdoor experiences, whether it’s camping, hiking, or in your own backyard!

Our guest is Dr. John Rowden, Director of Community Conservation at The National Audubon Society. Dr. Rowden explains how he came to study birds as a career, his graduate work studying a group of parrots in Australia, and talks about his role at the Society. You’ll learn a wealth of bird knowledge, such as what to do if you find a baby bird that has fallen out of its nest, how simple changes to your garden can help support the bird population, and how to get involved with your local Audubon chapter.

We spend some time talking specifically about hummingbirds, and Audubon’s citizen scientist program “Hummingbirds At Home,” which you can find more details about in the links below!

Birds provide your family with many opportunities to have fun, learn, and explore! Whether you take a trip to your local nursery for some plants that will support birds, take photos, record bird calls, or birding, it’s an ideal hobby for any adventurous family! The National Audubon Society offers some great tools and apps to help you along the way.
