Episode Five: Blue and Gold Macaws

By | Bird Show podcast | No Comments

Take a bird break to learn about Blue and Gold Macaws.  Co-host Luca the Macaw joins the conversation and reveals not only his sense of humor, but also some of the struggles he faces as a Macaw in captivity.  While we do make some serious points in this week’s episode, we also remember the importance of laughter.  Say, did you hear the one about the Blue and Gold Great White Shark?

Episode Three: Birds of Ireland

By | Bird Show podcast | No Comments

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, this week on the Bird Show we explore the lore behind the majestic Birds of Ireland. How did the Robin get her red breast? Why should you never let a Seagull borrow your shoes? And how did the Wren outsmart an Eagle to become the King of Birds? Find the answers (and maybe even a pot of gold) on today’s special shamrock-inspired episode of Dr. Crow’s Bird Show.

Episode Two: Sacred Birds

By | Bird Show podcast | No Comments

In this week’s episode, we dive deep into the spiritual and symbolic significance of Birds. From the Holy Dove to the self-sacrificing Pelican, avian beings have long played a sacred role in our individual and collective stories. Birds are often seen as divine messengers, explorers of both earth and sky. How, then, can we translate this soulful reverence for Birds to the avian individuals we encounter day-to-day?

We are kicking off Dr. Crow’s Bird Show with—you guessed it!—an episode on Crows. Crows are one of the most common and fascinating members of the Corvid family. On today’s episode, we’ll explore the secret life of these brainy birds. Did you hear about the Crow who meddled in a crime scene? Do you think Crows tell their chicks about the boogeyman? And how DO you tell the difference between a Raven and a Crow? We’ll answer these questions and more on today’s Bird Show.
