Birders have been portrayed onscreen for decades now, with mixed accuracy. While this has definitely changed for the better in recent years there's still room to grow and the web-series Birds of North America is pushing the public perception forward once again and it definitely deserves your attention. The series is produced by the media group Topic, it can be found on their website and on YouTube. It is hosted by Bronx-native and bird twitter stalwart Jason Ward and directed by filmmaker Rob Meyer, who wrote and directed A Birder’s Guide to Everything. They both join me to talk about this new venture and what it means for birders.

Also, a great idea in Portland that we might have heard before and a little bit on the LIVE episode of the American Birding Podcast that we're hosting at the Biggest Week in American Birding.
