About The Science of Birds

For fans of The Science of Birds podcast!


You're smart, you're curious, and you love birds. That makes you pretty cool, in my book.

I created The Science of Birds because I couldn't find any bird-related podcasts that were really focused on the biology of these animals. I'm a birder and really enjoy the 'sport' of birding. But as a naturalist, I want to dig deeper to understand the ecology, evolution, and behavior of birds.

So I decided to fill the void and produce a podcast myself. I figured at least 3 or 4 people out there (besides my mom) might enjoy the show.

It turns out that there's a whole bunch of you out there who value my approach to teaching about ornithology. You've sent me kind emails with encouragement and written reviews that warm my heart.

And—bonus!—most of you seem to enjoy (or at least tolerate) my goofy humor. I like to have fun when I write and record my podcast episodes. I try to be myself. I find ways to inject some levity into discussions of sciency topics that might otherwise be a little dry.

If you've read this far, I'm guessing you dig the podcast and you're considering how you might contribute.

By becoming a patron of The Science of Birds, you'll be supporting the podcast and helping me to continue making great episodes for you!

I work really hard writing, recording, editing, and promoting each episode. I love the process and I love the finished product. With help from patrons, I can make this whole thing sustainable, long into the future.

Thank you for your interest and for whatever support you can give. Seriously... THANK YOU!
