Here's the teaser trailer for an upcoming episode of OutBirding: Winter Invasion 2020 with Tom Johnson and Douglas Gochfeld.
The final months of 2020 blanketed eastern North America with a huge irruptive flight of Red-breasted Nuthatches, Blue Jays, Red-bellied Woodpeckers, finches (including Red Crossbills, Pine Siskins, Evening Grosbeaks), Bohemian Waxwings, and more. We followed the major players during this "superflight" and will bring you some great video, sound, and adventure from New Jersey, New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire.
Please enjoy a first look at our new episode from OutBirding with Field Guides.
Quest for the Dwarf Marmoset: A Journey on the Rio Aripuanã
How would you like to make a quick, adventurous trip into a remote place in the central Amazon basin? That’s exactly what OutBirding has in store for this week, as Micah Riegner takes us to the beautiful Rio Aripuanã in search of one of the most range-restricted primates on the planet — the tiny Dwarf Marmoset (Callibella humilis). This highly distinctive little beast, described to science only in 1998, is extremely poorly known in the wild. During the quest, Micah introduces us to a remarkable variety of other wildlife, from stingrays and electric eels to several seldom-seen birds of the Amazonian forest understory.
