The Dark Side of Starlings

 In this NPR podcast on bringing Purple Martins back to Chicago, Zhana Yemnikov talks about the darker side of starling and why they can be an invasive species.

Don't miss this charming podcast called My Hummingbird Summer, about caring for baby hummingbirds.

This NPR podcast talks about how the gift of mimicry can save a cuckoo's life.

Here's another incredibly beautiful mimic: The Lyrebird Steps up to the Microphone. I love the story of how David Stewart gets his recording.

These are all safe for school listening.

These podcasts are also from a CD I took out of the library called NPR Sound Treks: Spellbinding tales of flight, feather, and song. . . .
