The Casual Birder Podcast

A podcast about wild birds and bird watching.

Birding is a great pastime. It can be done with others or alone. You don't need expensive equipment; your eyes or ears are enough.

And best of all, it doesn't really need any great commitment. The Casual Birder does as much or as little birding as suits them. It's perfect for fitting into our busy schedules. 


Join me each episode as I:

  • talk about the birds I have seen, 
  • interview others who enjoy wild birds, and 
  • share comments and questions from listeners.
