Cheap Cheep Thrills: Fall Birding in Ohio


Springtime may get all the glory, but fall is just as full of avian activity! In fact, the sky is aflutter with almost 5 billion birds migrating south from Canada. This hour we'll talk about how to see some of them in action. We'll also discuss tips for attracting birds to the backyard, how to spot them in the wild, and why no "squirrel-proof" feeder is worth the bucks.
