Ep 3. Treasures in Urban Spaces and Gardens (Part 1)

Bird Nerds

Mar 29 2023 • 30 mins

This week we take you on a birdwatching trail through urban greens and wonderful gardens spruced with green lawns, paths shaded with large tree canopies and garden compounds lined with fruiting trees and flowering bushes. We talk about sparrows, sunbirds, barbets, cuckoos and raptors. Our conversation is peppered with some fun facts, interesting aspects about bird behavior as well as their popular local names. We also discuss some characteristic features and calls of these birds, which will help you identify them in their natural habitat.

Photographs of all birds mentioned in today's podcast are available on our Instagram handles: @peregrinator.in and @mariamspicclicks.
