The Prothonotary Warbler with Jarod Hitchings


Listen to the podcast feed

It isn't hard to tell that Jarod Hitchings is pretty keen on the Prothonotary Warbler (just look at that grin!), one of the most-loved migratory species in North America.  Jarod knows exactly when to expect his favourite migrants, and when they should be departing.  That's how birds, and the migratory, seasonal visitors can get under a bird-lovers' skin.

Unfortunately, Prothonotary Warblers are also Bird Strike victims. Fortunately, this bird survived the initial collision and recovered well enough to fly off after a period. Hopefully, it is still with us.

Watch the conversation (not safe for work or little kiddies)
