Georgia’s longleaf pine forests are home to many endangered species, including the Red-cockaded Woodpecker. This resilient and unusual little bird is making a comeback from the brink of extinction thanks to an unexpected partner and recovery efforts set in motion by the Endangered Species Act. But complicated rule changes and bureaucracy have put the protected status, and in turn the birds themselves, in jeopardy. This story comes to us from Producer Claire Reynolds.

    In the final episode of this season Host Ari Daniel tours the marsh at the Nemours Wildlife Foundation with Dr. Drew Lanham, cultural and conservation ornithologist at Clemson University. They bring us a story of time travel. Of touching a place through old hands and seeing it through new eyes. Of honoring a people for the incredible work they did— and sharing how that work continues today, and is reflected in the birds that call this place home.  Related Resources:ACE Basin - The Nature ConservancyLow Country Legacy - National GeographicNemours Wildlife FoundationAfrican Passages, Lowcountry Adaptations - Lowcountry Digital History Initiative | College of CharlestonLowcountry Land TrustHarriet Tubman’s Great RaidConnect with BirdNote on Facebook, Instagram and TwitterSign up to receive BirdNote's weekly newsletterBirdNote is an independent nonprofit media production company.

    Block Island, Bird Central

    30:47

    Every spring, millions of birds travel the Atlantic Flyway, one of four major North-South routes for migratory birds in the Americas. Along the way, they need to stop for food, water, and rest— and Block Island, Rhode Island, provides. In this episode, producer Ben James takes us to this special place where we meet master bird bander Kim Gaffett. She is the latest in a long line of women citizen scientists whose work on Block Island has instilled a powerful culture of bird study and conservation, stretching back over a hundred years.Related Resources:50 Years of Bird Banding - Block Island TimesThirsty Birds “Burn the Engine” in Flight - NPRBlock Island - The Nature Conservancy in Rhode IslandBlock Island ConservancyThe Bird Lady of Block Island, Miss Elizabeth Dickens - BlockIsland.comFlying Transformers: Birds Gear Up for MigrationConnect with BirdNote on Facebook, Instagram and TwitterSign up to receive BirdNote's weekly newsletterBirdNote is an independent nonprofit media production company.

    Vultures in Zimbabwe

    25:33

    Zimbabwe is home to six species of vultures, five of which are critically endangered and at risk of extinction. At Victoria Falls, researchers and wildlife rehabilitators are working to increase populations, and advocates in the cities of Bulawayo and Harare educate farmers and traditional healers on the importance of these birds to healthy ecosystems. Producer ish Mafundikwa takes us on a road trip around the country to explore the issues affecting these often misunderstood and maligned birds.Related Resources:BirdLife ZimbabweVulture Conservation - Victoria Falls Wildlife TrustSaving Africa’s Vultures - BirdLife InternationalJudge the Vulture Ambassador - Victoria Falls Wildlife TrustThe Race to Save Africa’s Vultures - BBC EarthVideo - Saving Africa’s Vultures in 2020 - BirdLife InternationalConnect with BirdNote on Facebook, Instagram and TwitterSign up to receive BirdNote's weekly newsletterBirdNote is an independent nonprofit media production company.

    Puffins: Cute to Catalyst

    22:27

    At Bempton Cliffs, on the Yorkshire Coast on the east side of the UK, about 3,000 charismatic little seabirds nest. The puffin is a sparkbird for producer Paul Drury-Bradey and many others that come to see them in the summer months. But these awkward flyers with colorful bills can spark more than just an interest in birds and birding. Conservationists hope they can also spark interest in addressing climate change, reducing and cleaning up plastic waste, and other human-caused challenges that threaten their existence. Related Resources:Video - A Day in the Life of RSPB Bempton Cliffs Reserve | RSPBBempton Cliffs Nature ReserveAtlantic Puffin - More at All About BirdsCounting Puffins - Bempton Cliffs - The RSPB CommunityAtlantic Puffin Conservation in the UK - Joint Nature Conservation CommitteeConnect with BirdNote on Facebook, Instagram and TwitterSign up to receive BirdNote's weekly newsletterBirdNote is an independent nonprofit media production company.

    Ospreys and Environmental Restoration

    28:09

    Butte, Montana, used to be home to some of the most productive copper mines in the country. About a quarter of the world’s supply came from the area and it’s now the site of a massive effort to restore the degraded ecosystem. But, the local birds aren’t just victims of the pollution; they can actually tell us if things are getting better as all the pollution gets cleaned up. Birds here offer portraits of what’s happening on a larger ecosystem scale—especially Ospreys, which are at the top of the food chain and depend on waterways that are now contaminated with heavy metals. Producer Nick Mott travels along this polluted area to peer into the lives of these birds to see what they reveal.Related Resources:Watch the Hellgate Ospreys Nest Cam livestreamLearn about the Montana Osprey ProjectMore about Ospreys at All About Birds"Old Mines Still Plague Montana’s Clark Fork" - High Country News"Lasers, Drones, and Air Cannons: Inside the Effort to Save Migrating Waterfowl From a Toxic Death" in AudubonConnect with BirdNote on Facebook, Instagram and TwitterSign up to receive BirdNote's weekly newsletterBirdNote is an independent nonprofit media production company.

    Swallow-tailed Kites in the Black Belt

    22:10

    In the Black Belt region of Alabama, we go on a birding tour and learn about the Swallow-tailed Kite. The  Swallow-tailed Kite’s range in this region decreased rapidly over the past one hundred years, primarily due to habitat loss from agriculture, urban development, and logging. Now protected by the State of Alabama, we visit a family farm where the kites are frequently seen and learn how the ensuing curiosity about the birds has brought new opportunities. Producer Jay Avery brings us this story of a threatened bird, an historically excluded human community, and how they are helping each other.Related Resources:Visit the website for Connecting with Birds and Nature ToursLearn about the Black Belt in Alabama AudubonSee how the Avian Research and Conservation Institute tracks Swallow-tailed KitesGet an overview of Swallow-tailed Kites on All About BirdsSustainability Ag-vocate: Christopher Joe of Joe's Learn about Christopher Joe of Joe's Black Angus Farm and Connecting with Birds and Nature ToursConnect with BirdNote on Facebook, Instagram and TwitterSign up to receive BirdNote's weekly newsletterBirdNote is an independent nonprofit media production company.

    The Siberian Crane: From Taiwan to Tundra

    25:53

    In the first episode of this new season of Threatened, we go on a life-changing journey with Sunny Tseng, a PhD student at the University of Northern British Columbia and a researcher at the Endemic Species Research Institute in Taiwan, where she’s based. The story starts in 2014 with a Siberian Crane that got blown off course, ending up in Taiwan. It’s a bird that usually migrates from the Siberian tundra — an ecosystem that’s currently undergoing a dramatic transformation as our climate changes — to southeast China. The appearance of a Siberian Crane in Taiwan was unexpected, and it set off a chain of events that put Sunny on the path that led her to where she is today.Related Resources:"Eco-Celebrity Crane Inspires Wetland Protection in Taiwan" in Smithsonian Magazine"Lost Siberian Crane Wins Taiwan’s Heart While Improving Its Food Supply" in Atlas Obscura"Lost cranes find sanctuary in Taiwan, Japan" in The Japan Times"Rare Visit to Taiwan by Siberian Crane Is a Bird-Watcher’s Dream" in The New York TimesConnect with BirdNote on Facebook, Instagram and TwitterSign up to receive BirdNote's weekly newsletterBirdNote is an independent nonprofit media production company.
