In May of 2020 I’ll be participating in the Great Canadian Birdathon! But I’ll be doing it a bit differently than how most do.
Typically in the birdathon, you choose a 24-hour period to go out and find as many bird species as you can.
But for this year I’m doing something different. I’m going to do audio recordings of as many species’s songs and vocalizations as I can! This means adjusting the format a bit: rather than determining a 24-hour period and hoping the weather is good for recording (it probably won’t be!) I’ll instead do up to 24 hours of recordings throughout the month of May – whenever the conditions are right and I have time available and the birds are around to sing.
Recordings made will be used to create new episodes of Songbirding. Some will likely be released within the month of May but much of it will likely come later, and it may be spread across a couple seasons of episodes, I’m not sure yet on that part.
