Talkin' Birds Radio Program


Tune in to Ray Brown's Talkin' Birds in 2017!

Ray Brown is a broadcast veteran with more than 3 decades of experience in commercial and public radio and television. His first gigs were at WNRI in Woonsocket, RI, and WJAR in Providence, RI. In the late 1970s, Ray landed a job at Cape Cod's WCOD-FM, where he served as a host until he moved to Boston in the early '90s. He's now been broadcasting on Boston's classical station, WCRB 99.5 FM, for fifteen years. Ray frequently hosts pledge drives for WGBH TV and radio in Boston, as well as for PBS. He's also the voice of Simon and Schuster's Pimsleur language-learning programs.

Beginning in February of 2015, Ray began appearing as a regular guest on National Public Radio's Weekend Edition Saturday with Scott Simon. The topic: birds.

Talkin' Birds is a live and interactive radio show about wild birds and the beauty of nature—attracting birds to your backyard, feeding them, and learning more about them. We feature expert guests and contests for prizes like bird feeders and other bird-related items each week.

Bald Eagles & Color Bands

Bald Eagle

MA: Were Gold & now they're Burnt Orange
NH: Black
ME: Red
NY: Blue
Bald Eagle by Phil Brown

Black has also been used in CT, RI, VT.

Most MA gold-banded eagles now 10 years old or more, but there are some still out there.  
MA uses 2 colors is that they ran out of alphanumeric combos for gold bands.

For same reason as above, NY also uses bi-colored band with red over black.

Color bands general placed on the left leg, except ME which places red band on right; 
in all cases there should be a silver federal band on the other leg.

Newburyport Birders February 2017 Birding Programs

Birders,

I wish you and your families a joyous holiday season.

Here are the February 2017 birding programs. 

SEASONAL SIGHTINGS

Cedar Waxwing by Nate Dubrow

Observe Cedar Waxwings who have silky-looking plumage. Both the male and female sport crests along with black masks. Their name comes from the waxy wing tips. They feed on fruit during the winter months. 

Brown Creeper by Bob
Stymeist

Appreciate the Brown Creeper, a tiny woodland bird with an affinity for the big trees. Look for these little, long-tailed, brown and white, nuthatch-like birds. They poke and probe into crevices and loose bark with their down-curved, slender bill.

Common Goldeneye by Jeremiah Trimble

Identify the black-and-white Common Goldeneye males.  The eyes will be bright yellow in adult drakes [males] and pale yellow to white in hens [females].  They're just arriving in our area and have an elaborate courtship which you can watch as winter settles in.  Here's a clip so you can recognize it when you see it:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Fwi9Di-RjU


NEWBURYPORT BIRDERS BIRDING PROGRAMS

Time: 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Fee: $15.
Meeting Location: Park & Ride on Storey Ave / Route 113 in Newburyport

In winter, Bald Eagles move south to the swift-moving Merrimack River which provides ideal, winter habitat for these majestic birds. We’ll search along the river’s edge and protected islands for our national symbol.  Some carpooling may be required.  Dress in layers and wear warm, waterproof boots.  Restrooms are available at the Park & Ride.

Time: 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Fee: $15.
Meeting Location: Park & Ride on Storey Ave / Route 113 in Newburyport

Each winter, Bald Eagles from northern New England move south to the lower Merrimack River which provides perfect, winter habitat for these majestic birds. Eagles are spectacular to watch when they soar high over the water and then stoop to secure prey with their sharp talons. Join Newburyport Birders for biscotti & hot chocolate as we discuss the Merrimack River's protected islands and the field marks of the Bald Eagle. We'll begin our search for our national symbol on foot; then we'll carpool to several sites along the river. Dress in layers and wear warm, waterproof boots. Restrooms are available at the Park & Ride.

Winter Birding in Rowley
