DIAL B FOR BIRDER, EPISODE 3


Hey fans, sorry for neglecting my blogging duties again. I got sucked into that deadly whirpool that sucked in all your other favorite blogs (except Byron Crawford and The Martorialist): the whirlpool of abandoning your blog to start a podcast nobody wants, and then abandoning the podcast. I watched--and helped--this same thing happen to 100 Grand On My Wrist,Yeah Life Sucks a few years ago, so I should've been able to avoid it, but I didn't. I got sucked in just like the rest of em. (Blame my friends and family for telling me I have a good radio voice!!! And then blame yourself for not listening to the podcast.)
 Don't worry, though, because that was all just a dramatic setup. The podcast is back, RIGHT NOW, with a NEW EPISODE and a NEW LOGO. 
For this episode, Thomas and I went to Garretson Point in East Oakland, to observe the native waterfowl, and ask some fellow birders to identify them for us off-mic.

NOTE: There is a "callback" in this episode that won't make sense to you, because I accidentally edited out the original mention of the thing.
