Taking a field trip with the birds

Ever wanted to spot a kingfisher or a yellow-headed blackbird or a kestrel? What about herons, flickers and yellow-rumped warblers? Even if you are an experienced birder, it can be tricky to spot and identify all of the amazing bird species in southern Idaho.

The Golden Eagle Audubon Society has a birding field trip for you, no matter if you’re an experienced birder, an eager newbie or you just want to spot a few cool birds and learn more about them.

The society and its bird volunteers host a ton of different birding field trips this time of year and Liz Paul, who coordinates the program and field trippers Katie Crooks, Lorraine Poor and Jim James joined Idaho Matters to tell us more about them.

As Senior Producer of our live daily talk show Idaho Matters, I’m able to indulge my love of storytelling and share all kinds of information (I was probably a Town Crier in a past life). My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
