Writer and researcher Scott Weidensaul is an expert on migration. In his new book, A World on the Wing: The Global Odyssey of Migratory Birds, he gets into their amazing feats of migration and the new technologies giving us insights into how they make their global journeys. Scott also explores the threats facing migratory birds today and what we can do to support them. Ari Daniels does the BirdNote Threatened series and interviews Scott in this podcast. This could be the most interesting 30 minutes you spend this week as Scott takes us around the world learning about shorebird migrations that give new meaning to the word “extreme”, how birds use quantum physics to read the earth’s map for migration, how anyone can find out where and how many birds are migrating at night and so much more!
