Want to be a birder

By erik.lionberger - Oct 17 2019

Just finished a video shoot and exploration in South Korea, Gyeongju and was listening to the various bird songs and spotted a few here and there. Thought to myself, I think I will become a birder. Got on the bus to go back to my campus, found your podcast, and listened to you all~ I very much enjoyed it and look forward to exploring this new interest that has planted itself somehow in my psyche. Listening to you talk about your adventures put a little water on that seed, so I thank you very much. Cheers, and happy birding:) oh, and it doesn’t hurt that Erik spells his name correctly:)

Very entertaining

Rank #9: Greg Miller, the "Birding Philosopher"

Podcast cover

Hannah and Erik have an insightful and enjoyable talk with birding legend...Greg Miller!  In 1998, Greg trekked the US to see how he could do in a Big Year and ended up competing against several other fantastic birders.  Funnily enough, their quest was documented in the book and subsequently made into a fantastic movie, both titled The Big Year.  

Greg is a wonderful guy and we really joyed talking to him about his adventures and his philosophies on life.  Say "hi" the next time you see him birding!
