On this edition of At Water’s Edge, we are lost, we wander, and we are found. The RadioSpiral library is full of wonderful musical journeys from all kinds of artists creating all kinds of sounds. Today we wander through its towers and stacks, and get a little lost along the way, stopping to say hello to Silvercord, EugeneKha, Sequential Dreams, ...…
 
A couple of times this winter I’ve been lucky enough to hear one of our more obscure nocturnal residents in my neighborhood. This species is relatively quiet in winter compared to our more common owls, but, if you can whistle, they can be coaxed to reveal themselves. Everything about the species in question is adorable - their tiny, compact bod ...…
 
The impact of composer Leo Delibes on ballet music in general--and Tchaikovsky’s, in particular.
 
In the North Carolina Highlands, also known as Asheville, forecasters are predicting snow this weekend. And since Spiral did a show on “Ice”, it stands to reason that “Snow” should be today’s topic on At Water’s Edge. We’ll hear all kinds of snow music from all kinds of artists in the RadioSpiral library, including a collaboration yours truly d ...…
 
The final Christmas Bird Counts for the Cape and Islands were held over the last week – the Truro count on the 2nd and the Vineyard count on the 5th. The closer it gets to the end of the count period, the risker the weather gets, with higher chances of a deep freeze or storm in early January wrecking your count. I had rescheduled my Truro count ...…

A second celebration of winter in music by Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Debussy, Holst, Piazzolla, and more.
 
This week’s edition of At Water’s Edge is another challenge episode. The requirement for the challenge was to create a winter track that did not rely on the usual audio tropes such as sleigh bells and so on. The episode now takes on extra significance for personal reasons, and we are grateful for the outpouring of love and support. We’ll hear n ...…
 
It’s the most wonderful time of the year – Christmas Bird Count season! Birders are digging out their warmest winter garb, polishing their optics, and marking their calendars to prepare for the all-out birding blitz that is the Christmas Bird Count season. It runs from December 14 to January 5, and I can guarantee there’s a count near you.…
 
Surprise! I found some time in the last 48 hours and spent 25 of those hours putting this one together. Just in time for Christmas! This idea come from Brain Damaged listener, Andrew McClain who suggested a podcast of songs performed that are not part of a usual set list. There are many ‘first time’ and ‘first time in a long time’ songs in this ...…

As a lifelong birder, and thus someone who is constantly and obsessively monitoring the birds around me, I’ve had my share of rare avian visitors to my various yards. Last week brought the latest such bird, and though it’s a species that breeds right here in Massachusetts, it was by far the rarest “yard bird” I’ve ever had. When you factor in b ...…

While October provided a non-stop rare bird show on the Cape and Islands, November proved a little quieter, before going out with a bang last week. Two Sundays ago, a biking birder on Nantucket flushed a nondescript gray bird from a dune near Low Beach.

This week on At Water’s Edge, another challenge episode! Similar to the M2m (Major to minor) challenge, the artists were to start with something dark, and then shift it to light by the end, or vice-versa… Five artists stepped up to the challenge this time: playman54, Glenn Sogge, George L Smyth, Tony Gerber, and Palancar. The album is now avail ...…
 
In early November of 1983, Cape birder and prototypical citizen scientist Blair Nikula organized members of the Cape Cod Bird Club to count waterfowl on the freshwater lakes and ponds of the Cape. They covered more than 200 ponds that first year, tallying 4,000 ducks, loons, and grebes of 22 species.…
 
Music about music—from Handel to Schubert, from Strauss to Mahler, from Vaughan Williams to Bernstein
 
The second of a two part series, this week we focus on various kinds of courage: daring to dream, daring to look into the future, daring to leap, daring to love. Last week we heard music about Truth and perception, and observed that telling the truth can sometimes make one vulnerable. So truth is, in fact, a kind of dare. We’ll hear music by mi ...…
 
As I sat down to write this week’s bird report, I was prepared to talk about the latest mind-bogglingly rare bird to turn up on the Cape. But then I had one of those forehead-slapping realizations where the proper course of action becomes painfully obvious. I’ll get to that rare bird next time, but this week we obviously need to talk turkey.…
 
Roger is almost set to wrap up his current South American Us + Them tour. A few days ago while at Estadio Nacional, Santiago, Chile, he played The Gunners Dream, which is included in this podcast.

Truth is stranger than fiction. Life imitates art. What is truth? The world around us is increasingly bizarre, where the truth as it’s presented must be questioned every minute of every day. But the truth (see what I did there?) is that humans have been fiddling with truth as long as we’ve been around. We bend it to suit our needs, whether to o ...…
 
Another week of fall has brought another slate of wacky birds to the Cape and Islands. Whether late lingering landbirds are your thing, or southern seabirds are what tickles your fancy, as usual, we can accommodate you here on this birdy archipelago.By mfaherty@massaudubon.org (Mark Faherty).
 
At long last! It’s time for the “Elevator Music” challenge episode! We have some GREAT entries for it, too! This was a fun challenge — from some traveling a few months ago, your friendly AWEsome host captured the rather horrifying sound of an elevator’s floor markers. Normally they’re nice dings or tones, but this one was an awful metallic buzz ...…
 
Fall on the Cape and Islands can be a head-spinning time, with interesting birds coming at us from literally all directions – migrants from the north and west, wind-blown vagrants from the south and southwest, and seabirds from the east. Our weather, and particularly the wind, have been all over the place of late, bringing interesting birds fro ...…
 
On this All Hallows Eve, I'd like to address a particularly terrifying topic – something that strikes fear into the hearts of many, including, I suspect, some of you. It’s risky even talking about it, as the mere mention of it may produce a deafening roar of radio dials being clicked to other stations. I’m talking about sparrow identification.…
 
I want you to envision a 17th century, agrarian version of yourself. Superstitions are rampant and it’s generally accepted that ghosts live among us. You’re entering an old abandoned barn on some spooky fall night, when suddenly a white, spectral figure with dead, black eyes slips noiselessly past you, right before you hear this .…
 
Here’s a podcast I’ve been kicking around for years. I have no idea why it took me this long to get around to doing it but glad I did. If you want to know what Pink Floyd songs mention an animal, you’ve come to the right place. This podcast consists of several species of mammals. Its like a zoo! Here’s a list of lyrics that mention an animal to ...…
 
It is autumn, at long last. After a brutal summer and a frightening and destructive storm season, the weather very suddenly turned to late autumn, with almost no transition from the heavy heat of late summer. So today we finally look at the autumn season, and feature a new album that celebrates it beautifully. We’ll hear the new release October ...…
 
While birding Cuttyhunk Island recently, Lakeville birder Mike Sylvia saw something that gave him quite a “start” – a Painted Redstart, that is, representing only the second state record for this stunning warbler from Mexico. Of all the western U.S. rarities that have turned up on the Cape, Islands, and South Coast in recent weeks, this bird is ...…
 
The incredible hit-parade of off-course birds from the Western US continued this week, with sightings of Western Kingbirds from High Head in Truro and Lark Sparrow and Bell’s Vireo at Fort Hill in Eastham. But instead of these actual birds, I’m more in the mood to talk about theoretical birds – the predicted influx of the so-called “winter finc ...…

We are a weather-obsessed people – talking about the weather, prognosticating about the weather, complaining about the weather - so I assume you have checked the forecast for the next few days. But have you checked the BirdCast? Yes, there is such a thing, and it’s provided by your friends at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, as part of their que ...…
 
It’s hard to avoid the subject of migration this time of year. Each week, perhaps each day brings new species leaving, arriving, or passing through this avian crossroads of an archipelago we all inhabit. Whether you are a connoisseur of the showy wading birds, an aficionado of the summer seabirds, or a fancier of waterfowl, there is something f ...…

September is a time of transitions, especially here on the Cape. Summer visitors have transitioned back over the bridge. Our kids transition back to school, our beaches and parks transition back to local ownership. And perhaps more than in any other month, transitions in the bird world are everywhere evident, from the exodus of northern songbir ...…
 
Most of you would agree that shorebirds are inherently beautiful – these graceful and delicate, long-winged beach sprites arrayed in subtly beautiful earth tones, often splashed with brighter orange or red, are not in need of further adornment.By mfaherty@massaudubon.org (Mark Faherty).
 
Come and join this discussion. What are your thoughts on this. Share your opinion and let me know your thoughts.
 
With summer winding down, and back to school time upon us, I thought we should check in on the kids of the bird world and see what they are facing this fall. With more than “pencils, books, and teacher’s dirty looks” to worry about, they may help put your kids’ or grandkids’ annual Labor Day malaise in perspective.…
 
I’ve been in the mood for something from the European Division Bell Tour. Maybe I should of done this podcast last month. It’s hard to think these concerts were almost 25 years ago. For this podcast, we go to Chateau de Chantilly, Chantilly, France, 30. July 1994. Here’s the playlist!
