New episode - White Ibis begin nesting in New Jersey

New episodes - Conversation with a Scorpiologist (+ Eared Quetzal bonus!)

 

Watch this trailer for a taste of this week's OutBirding offerings:

Conversation with a Scorpiologist:

In addition to birds, Chris Benesh is passionate about many other aspects of life on earth. In recent years, this energy has been channeled into learning more about scorpions - their identification, distribution, life histories, etc. In this video, Chris and scorpiologist Kari McWest discuss scorpion taxonomy and head out into the field to look for a localized species near Tucson, Arizona.
