S3E18 - NF: Casual Birder - My Garden Birds, Summer 2020

2020 has been a difficult and challenging year.

Many of us have been seeking solace in nature. And, as I've remained at home much of the time since March, my garden birds have provided interest and distraction.

In this episode, I'll tell you about the birds I've seen from my garden this year, and speak in more detail about the 13 species that regularly visit my garden, including:

  • what they look like,
  • how they sound, and
  • some of the behaviours and interactions I've noticed.
