Birding in Urban Areas

I was recently interviewed by Timothy Martinez Jr. for the blog "Into the Air", a publication of Backyard Chirper, an online retailer of bird feeder and bird house products. The final piece is entitled "Birding in Cities: Why urban dwellers shouldn’t be discouraged". From the article:

"Tucked away in the greenery of one of the busiest cities in the world, a small group of birders sets their sights on warblers, vireos, orioles, Monk parakeets and many other unique species.

Led by nature and bird enthusiast Rob Jett, these birders of New York City—home to about eight million people and the country’s tallest skyscrapers—see many species that birders in rural areas only dream about."
