"bird" Discussed on Dirty Bird Podcast
"There's a lot of other nasty diseases like akali bass celosias georgia and truck manassas. They also can get fungal infections. Like aspirin gelo says from moldy seed and that aflatoxin. We were talking about earlier. That's produced by aspergillus. So delay seem old. You're going to them the birds however they did conclude that the most positive impact of bird feeders is helping to turn a casual bird observer into an activist for bird conservation. So like your feeder probably isn't really helping burbs and maybe hurting them if you're not cleaning it and but overall they were like didn't wanna come out against bird feeders. Because some bird feeder they start seeing birds and they want to help preserve you know natural areas and like they see something about an endangered bird. And they're like oh like we need to help this bird. Now they're in the burbs. And i guess i'll say like i think bird feeders probably got me way more into birds he knows cole saying i'm yeah definitely. Yeah but yeah. It's not just enough to be a bird fan you've gotta work towards conservation. Do the do the easy things. Keep your cat indoors for one thing Donate to bird conservation organization vote for legislation that will help preserve natural areas Put up a bluebird box or a birdhouse Listener to dirty bird. Podcast and tell your friends but there needs to be more research on this subject to in like really determined what we need to do with birdseed. Obviously the companies that produce birdseed and bird. Feeders they wanna keep that stuff going right. They don't want people to come out that it's bad words but yeah i dunno tim thoughts. It was one of the main things that i was curious about in Got as i expected it. There's definitely to q. Sides you in. It's not a clear clear outcome as to whether it's a positive or negative effect overall on birds but this is just been awesome to get a the breakdown of the different types of fee that you can offer and just how different types of seed help different species and yeah like jon said the important thing is just really doing your research and being active where it's gonna help so you know focusing on conservation and also get involved with organizations that have things set up to help her species. Yep for sure. I talked a lot about starlings in house sparrows earlier and you know. They're invasive species in america and in over lovable and like bird feeders have been shown that they disproportionately benefit invasive species There was a study in auckland new zealand that showed that starlings house house-sparrows monk parakeets. They were kind of able to become established in cities because of bird feeders at were available and the shitty thing too is like even if you take away the bird feeders like they they did. This really would take away the bird. Feeders and see like ole those invasive species die off now they just move away into the countryside or something and maybe they'll be some die off but like they'll find other food sources and so on how like. Maybe it's good. That just have the bird feeders to just keep them in the urban setting. But i don't know there's still probably spread out anyway with excess population. So yeah i guess if you're in an area with invasive bird species like a lot of starlings a lot a house barrows coming around a lot of monk parakeets Then try to use just like maybe sunflower seeds safflower seeds stuff that the starlings house bears monk parakeets can't use but some of our native birds Ken so i got one last birds he fact in then. We'll wrap up with some more questions. I think you're four four six or six. Yes we got three more questions. And if timmy just gets one of those right he'll get some dirty birds. Stickers remembered your listener you can get some to just write a review on apple podcasts or just help spread the dirty bird. Love tell french. Share some stuff on social media. Say now you know necessarily on instagram aright. While fact prior to the development of prosthetics and breast reconstruction surgery. It was common for women who had undergone mistake amies for breast surgery to use a bag of birdseed as a prosthesis interesting. Yeah so yeah who knew that. Birdseed was involved in breast cancer and yeah recovering from breast cancer. All right tim. that's all. I got him birdseed. Did i answer all your questions. Absolutely that was awesome. Just to get a breakdown of you know because at the different types and how the different species can use the the benefit from the different types of seed so i definitely feel a lot better informed on on how to properly go about maintaining a feeder and the do yeah for sure yet checkout may episode where talk with the wildlife conservation as a rehabilitator also talked with the veterinarian at a wildlife rehab center and they have tons of good advice on how you can best help birds best tell maintain a feeder all that kind of stuff all right. Well let's get these three questions done this is. I'm probably going to have to repeat these answer choices. Because they're very very long. Although i don't know. I think that you'll probably get this answer pretty easily but okay. Hey the olive genius hemming sp- aengus blue ear the glossy starling the tinkling system. Cola the one eyed one horned flying. Purple partridge eater. Something tells me go the yes. The one eyed one horn flying purple part not a real but the olive genius hemisphere aengus.

It's not just food for birds either. It's an ancient drain that was cultivated and consumed for centuries especially in asia and africa. So like it's still used in diets in in those continents today and honestly we should really consider incorporating this grain into our diets in the us to. It's gluten free. It's pretty environmentally friendly from the research. I've done however it's kind of seen as just bird food duck food in the western world.

The hornets often breaks off. And they don't use it as a weapon you know. It's like some decorative like mating thing however they do have bone spurs on their wings. There are so sharp that they can lodge into other birds throats and kill them. Wow yeah yeah. So the horn doesn't do shit. They got these hurricane bone spurs eligible. Slice your throat. The frog mouth You know you know the frog now. This odd-looking yeah there are a type of nightjar so there are these nocturnal birds at eat bugs and they have these giant mouse to swallow up mosquitoes and stuff flying around at night and their native to india and in the shoe bill. This you bill famously. I think is implanted earth or something. Yeah it's a stork. like bird. Native to the swamps of east africa. It looks like a muppet. It is a super derby burden. It's actually kinda distantly related with the the herron line. I kind of talk about a little bit in my hearing episode bassoon all right. Let's go on to talk about another seed So this one is red. Milo also called sorghum. It's in the grass family of plants. Though widely spread domesticated sorghum bipolar was first domesticated in africa. It is also used as filler in a lot of bird seeds. it's bigger and bulkier than millet. It's easily confused with red millet. Select you'll see in birdseed especially cheap birds. You'll see those little red balls so some of those red balls there's red millet which we just talked about millet like. Isn't that bad this. Milos usually used as kind of filler. Because it's bigger than a bigger ball than the red melodies but the way to tell them apart apparently is you look at it and ask. Is it smaller than a grain of rice Apparently milo is bigger than a grain of rice and millet is smaller than a grain of rice. So there's some sources say sorghum is bad when you look. It's really super mixed on information here. All about birds actually recommends it over millet. They say that it's better for birds can be eating more frequently But then i found a study that compared their fat fiber and protein content and honestly yeah white millet looked better than than someone who did Sorghum has percent fat two percent fiber eleven percent protein white millet though is like better on the fat four percent fat better on the fiber six percent fiber and the same amount of protein eleven percent. So i don't know. I think it's probably fine for them and this is also another one. That's most often eaten by ground. Feeding birds here toe. He's your morning dove. That kind of stuff all right and then another one. You'll see in your bird seed cracked corn This is liked a lot by ground. Feeding birds i notice on my platform feeder. That jays crows dove will come to it. Also turkeys will come. Cracked corn Grouse ducks also love. Cracked corn You know our corn was domesticated right. That was north america. Yes laws yup It has a very interesting domestication history. I won't go into full detail here. It was painstakingly domesticated from like these tiny little seed wild grasses in mexico about eight thousand seven hundred years ago i mean. I always thought that corn probably.

"Yeah for sure and people let me now. There's bird you want me to do. Let me know. And i'll do it. You know i'll do all the research all right. So let's talk about birdseed. What the hell is in your birdseed. You now is a good for the birds. Bad for the birds is it. Are you just introducing invasive species you know but before he began Why don't we do a question. Him sounds good. Senator tammy first question. So which of these bird names is made up the hairy breasted barbot the ruby coated oven bird the sapphire vented puff leg or the bearded helmet crest. Fini me to repeat them. I can repeat the first two for me. Hairy breasted barbeque ruby coated oven bird. Sapphire vented puff leg in bearded helmet. Crest i hang. I'm gonna have to go with the ruby coated oven bird. You are correct sir. Yes so the hairy breasted bar bid. It's a bird that lives in the rainforests of africa. Sapphire vented puff leg. It's actually a hummingbird that's in the rainforest south america and the beautiful helmet crests is also hummingbird in south. America lives in high altitude grasslands. Interesting yeah that's a good job. They all sound kind of like very. You know tropical like colorful species of bird through me such species as an alvin bird. Yeah yeah they actually live here on the east coast. Yeah there on the related toothbrushes and stuff cool bird they live in the forests and seeing and they have they do like a song like goes higher and they have like an orange like crest on top of their head oga yes. They're they're cool bird. Look out for me definitely All right so let's talk about birdseed. Here's some just general facts about birdseed in twenty sixteen birdseed sales total four billion in the us and was purchased by an estimated fifty seven to sixty million people so that's around like a third of all households in the us feed birds. Yeah that's even greater number than i realized. Now it's definitely increased in popularity over the past year. Yeah with the pandemic to people that birds because all they're doing is just looking out their window. Exactly what i wanna know is where the hell are those sixty million people. And why aren't they listening to exactly because obviously they like bird so come on listen to get. There's a reason people. Yeah i want sixty million review order sixty of the most recognizable seed in your bird. Seat is probably sunflower seed. Sunflowers are actually in the daisy family. And what country do you think. They're native to our continent. Europe not america drilling their native in. There's over seventy species of them They started off in the wild but then they were domesticated by native americans Actually in the eastern okay. Yeah so it's a it's a crop that comes from the eastern. Us indigenously quickly spread amongst native people. Archaeological evidence shows sunflowers turning up in mexico as early as four thousand years. Ago in the wild sunflowers plans with like lots of branches and lots of flowers little small seeds and small flowers so basically they were domesticated to have a single large flower that produces large seeds. Humans like these big recedes. Because you know it's more bang for your bach and takes less work to open the shell and get that little juicy seed. Birds also likely recognize the advantages of these domesticated sunflowers and they probably feasted on these native american sunflower fields like the same way they do at the feeder. So when you put your feet or with sunflower seeds in it kinda resembles the way native. Americans used to have field of sunflowers in in the eastern u. s. and everything. So yes that kind of makes me feel better about putting them out. And you know they'll fall out of the feeder and like while in some flowers grow and like You know it's always kinda cool when you're making a little sunflower regarding right there to definitely. There's two types of sunflower seeds usually see in the mix for birds. There's black oil and then stripe sunflower most mixes have black oil sunflower because it has a thin shell and it's easier for most birds to crack open as name implies. It has high oil content so that provides a lot of fat and energy for birds however the shells are so thin that some invasive species like house sparrows and starlings can also crack them open and eat them. If you wanna avoid these birds being able to eat your sunflower seeds you can try striped sunflower that. It has a thicker shell in a larger seed. Strike some flowers like if you go to the gas station. Buy a pack of sunflower seeds salted sunflower seeds to eat. It's going to be stripes on flower. Not black oil. The black lawyer like kind of bitter to yeah those stripes on fire seeds only native birds like cardinals grow. Speaks woodpeckers can easily crack open the shells and eat them you can also get hold. Sunflower seeds There are sometimes called sunflower hearts and the is removed from them. So makes it easier for birds to eat them. And then there's less waste piled up underneath your feet or sometimes like there's just tons of showery now but they quickly rot so you kinda gotta change it out a lot also. Some birds will preferentially select sunflower seeds with the husk over ones. That are shelled. Especially if they are planning on storing them winter so like nut hatches chickens. Are tit mice. You'll usually see them. Go down grab a sunfire. See that has the shell on it and go fly off to tree somewhere in store. It in the barker. Something for for winner and they've actually proved this study's to that. Those birds preferentially choose sunflower seeds with shell on it versus ones. That are already hostile. Yeah which is kinda cool. I mean you'd think they'd want the ones that are already shelled right like no other thinking ahead. Yeah they're planning awesome. Also another very common birdseed component especially in cheap. See that you buy is millet. So at i kinda hated this seed because semillas like the little balls you'll see like you'll see two types of them in birdseed. It's usually unlike the very cheap birds that you there's red and there's golden millet. They're like these tiny red white or yellow sea balls. I i really used to not like it. Because i i always saw house. Sparrows eating this and like invasive species and stuff and it's the cheap stuff so it can't be good right but like actually now that i've done more research. I i kinda like it. It's ancient grass crop that was domesticated independently in asia india and africa multiple times so like early. Humans like knew that this was a good crop The first evidence for Cultivation comes from east asia as far back as ten thousand years ago it has a wide range of uses as food for humans livestock and of course our birdseed ducks especially seemed to like it however many birds at feeders do not like it from what i've noticed especially in north america. Birds hated and shovel it out of the way in the feeder in order to get to like good stuff like peanut sir like see the ted mice. Do this all the time. They landed the feeder in. They'll just shovel the milit- out of the way until they get to peanut and you know they're just spilling the mill all over the ground to house barrels. Like i said seem to love it though. And it's the cheaper seed so i've noticed when i use it more house. Sparrows will come to my feeder. When i don't use it like the house. Barrels are a little less but ground. Feeding birds love it to like native species like toe. He's mourning doves. You'll see them packing at the ground and picking up millet known. It doesn't.

"Bautisa when he broke out now I, know that's fifty four home runs but they did not wait around in also a different regime they locked Jose up in it ended up being complete steel of a contract for the production. Got I agree Adam I would love to Oscar right now whether it's four or five year deal extending something very similar to Randall because he's way better offensively the Randall Grischuk as an all around header. If I was to pick the order in which I. Think the three kids will get their extensions are they going to be both I and I would not be surprised to see this off season? I still think they're gonNA wait navy one more year to Vlad and cabin. There still some things that they both have to figure out I. Think Bo is the most polished of the three of them right now most ready to go. So we'll go there and to put A. Put on. On who I think should be extended from WHO got a deadline. I'm operating under the assumption that Taiwan Walker is going to be one most in demand free agent. How we performed so I don't fix likely. But just based on how bad Robbie Ray rice this year I think you could get him back on a cheap. Option year and what you can loaded up with some incentives in another full spring training and started the season for Pete Walker, to work with Ray. You could have. One and one A. and one B. With Review Pearson and Ray to start next year. Now it's a backfire but that's why it's a short term contract I do like the idea of Robbie Ray and I. Let's see personally because I don't think Walker will be back I. Almost think you can get Robbie Ray back on a little bit more money loaded version of the match shoemaker deal. Just because he does have a little bit more of a track record than shoemaker has had and I think that it will. Probably track mill on it or whatever it might be. But I think that something like that would actually be very beneficial and he's obviously been very comfortable since coming the Blue Jays organization I can't stay. TORONTO. But yeah, there is some level of comfort there I. Think we'll carry pretty well and his decision. The flip of that is the opposite for Taiwan Walker you even use me in the playoffs..

"Blue Jays. Ballpark? He was. He was catching that night for. When I was younger. So all hail and every everybody in that ballpark was smart enough to see Alejandro Kirk back then and Ponts in watching it. Just saying the kids got that. Same. I'm assuming because he's not on the roster. Yeah, he's. Not, understanding. That was just piggybacking catcher or You know what? Craig I I said no I'll VR. Whatever. I'll do it just. You're just trying to make the Blue Jays fans actually hope after your previous ramp that he actually does have some light the end of the tunnel after two games. Reverse psychology maybe. Is. This like. That's right. You're trying to just make sure you know you slam them and then copy these issues. So he does better. I've been. Yeah. There's that or he'll just lock me and believe me I've been blocked by. A pretty sure. We got blocked my Marcus stroman during the trade season. He's just saying. We'll nerve. Block. Yeah. I. Probably said something that disagreed with and or sorry I probably shining rogers disagrees with us and. God. That's too funny. So you Mike I have another account. Mobile. Sipping through everything I season walk everybody. So I'm. GonNa Think grits is GONNA come back. All right. I I'M GONNA go with Randall. So. That's my tech. fellas that is the the evening unless either you have something you would like to chime in here before the end of the show and I keep saying we have more and more vista listeners. When are the forty five? So even people poking in here last minute of the show to Cheeky Shenanigans. Yeah a couple things. Keep, watching this team, it's very exciting. It's awesome that were in a playoff race and. Raptors. Need to get back on come on but let's turn the ship around. Allies. I'm just excited for postseason Baseball Tacoma. Let's. Get. It.

"You can maybe say. But. Like the immediate return, this is probably the best trade they've made very well set. So. He did this good guys and you could tell there was something just tweet enough that it was the ten days rest. He walked more batters. He's Walkman any start this year and we're still talking this high praise them. Yeah. So there is something to sit there and I think what Brennan said on this two three year contract idea. What is the worst case scenario guys you have? A Guy like review and Pearson. That might eventually be the the ascending star in this rotation right? You got you and Walker worst case scenario. That's that's lights out for a couple of years of you're going to have that kind of thing I think the thing that's going for Walker the most of all this stuff he doesn't have to be the number. One Guy in Toronto is a guy has been a a total player. Since, he was a Yankee in a minor league system. So the fact that all the sudden. You know even the frigging Mar- Mary's uniform. He was expected to be probably the best starter out of that rotation. So it's nice to know that he's got somebody like. To actually lean on in have that quote unquote ace level and he can just kinda sit back and do as thing. Allah Right Holiday G, Burnett Kyle combination you know he doesn't have to be the guy is amazing. One how much not avenue that actually can duper player and they can just go about their business and run with it, and that's exactly what we saw from him. Just showing up and gone ham here, and then running with the other night and we're looking very very Ford was second start, which is going to be over the right tomorrow. Tomorrow. Yeah this is Laura. So Thursday, we get more Taiwan Walker we'll have hopefully more good wonderful. Thanks to say because I really think that be back on the pace in actually with a team that's being is competitive as the Blue Jays. That controls going to hopefully come back and then the start will that much better. In the next couple of just because of that I just can't believe he had that lights out stuff through that many more pitches because the walks and still burs shit six inning shutout. Yeah knots. Awesome so Anyway moving right along fellow. So. Let's talk some of the stuff that has happened over the league. Obviously we talk. Tie Walker Kyle the highlight of last week. What in these last few series has really stood out for you. As we kind of dusted the Baltimore. Oriels as we talked about earlier, unless talked as Marlins series that obviously has not gotten to the start that we were hoping to against a team that is also in the same position as US trying to figure out what the hell they can do to get into the playoffs. Animal. Let's kick this off is where we are over the last week. So the Baltimore Series Is I. Touched on this earlier is exactly what you wanted to say we we ask for three out of four. We got the first three out of four fourth game was gravy. Um. You WanNa, see that kind of production. You WanNa see that kind of chemistry riding through and you see them take advantage of the Games that are supposed to win win those games right and that's what made last night's game against. MIAMI. Very frustrating is because they should be winning these games and for each game you lose in my mind it's one more you have to win against the Yankees right and so you.

"Like they did exactly what they should do and everything it sounds like is trending in the right direction that maybe it wasn't as bad as they thought. But where are we at is where we're what I'm concerned with but worse case than guys. He will be in the bullpen by the end season. There is no doubt in my mind and you've got a guy I control hundred out of the bullpen. This comes out near as. Three batters. atty with that. I just I'm concerned because elbow anything is not what you WanNa hear especially from someone with that this young this fresh in the. and that throws as hard as he does he definitely lost faith in this fastball. It seemed in that game. He was going slider a lot and I, don't know if that's because of the armed discomfort I'd imagine it is They're still awaiting the results of the MRI right and it depends on where you're at now it. Like you said Craig does depend on where you're at depends on what kind of a push they're making. If they are legitimately making playoff push, do you risk it? Do you risk the longevity of him as a starter maybe blowing up his arm sidelining him for a year with Tommy John just for the sake of a playoff run do you risk it? I. Don't know I'm really torn I. Don't have an answer for that I. don't. I'm I'm legitimately down the middle because I want this team to go into the playoffs just get into the dance the other time this is this is the Jim. Guy, that's going to anchor our rotation. So it's it's definitely precious cargo. So I'm not sure how to handle this my fear about putting them in the bullpen is that I'm worried about a repeat Aaron Sanchez scenario, right? That's also my fear because they are similar. They definitely harder ray and the stuff is a little bit if not a lot better than Aaron Sanchez but the flip flopping is what concerns me because that's objectively what fucked up Aaron Sanchez in the organization objective. Yeah I. Don't want a repeat of that if if they're going to put them in the bullpen to ease him back in and say, Hey, just for this year because it's such a weird season, we could use your heat coming out of the bullpen next year for sure starting and they follow through with that fine fine I'll take it but you have to follow through with it you can't going back. You have to make a decision and I, think that's where the rat right now. I really do because I don't think they want to damage if they are in playoff contention and they think there's even a. Ten percent chance of putting him in the rotation and risking that they would probably but we can put you in the bullpen and save a season. There's a difference there right? He'd be setup. Rates. It's your mono all over again. Yes it. So. Now, that's a very difficult question to answer because if you do get Pearson right and you get into a three-game series against Oakland or the Yankees, you could feel pretty damn confident having a review Pearson going game one and game two. Only got to win two of those right. If you get one of those wins.

"This series because there are good pitcher storm My biggest problem with the previous raise games is everything that they actually finally took advantage of what self inflicted. Yes. As of today, the Tampa Bay rays are actually the leading team in the American League after they swept the New York Yankees. Off. But. This pitching staff is already taking a giant. Injury issue with Charlie Morton being gone. Yeah that's a huge haul for them had the for your out hurry up and figure out how to scramble to get somebody to fill that giant innings eater that veteran light Charlie Morton is going to be. Would be handling otherwise. I just there's something about the raise that they always find a way to win. But if you had to tell me right now if the Blue Jays were infinitely worse than the Tampa Bay rays, I would laugh at you because I really think if everything was right or some certain little tiny mundane things happened differently that we swept and taking all those games against the rays outside the one that they completely blew us lockout. So. The fact that they have competed in every game against the now American League East. Leading. Team. says. A lot and I think wait. Now the craziest thing is going to happen is both these teams have insane amount of momentum going on. And they're gonNA literally full on run into each other colliding. And it's GonNa. Be Fun to watch I hope because in all reality, this could be a playoff battle the way you're looking at it right now, the Blue Jays continue to trant trend in the direction that they have done over the last week even if they were halfway or your guys we're talking to team that is now solidifying their competence. That's probably GONNA be hanging around I would hope at least five hundred for the rest of the season. I also. Think they can win to at least in the tour game series. Are you feeling confident enough they that or just one out of the fourth It's like come on at. The Bar God. Yeah I was GONNA say to I was going to say I think they could split the Siamese. First of all, they don't they don't have to deal with any sort of rain outright these are definitely going to go full through. they don't have to worry about any sort of lineup management for for a double header. I do think they can take to especially with shoemaker going I think they can take to. If, they do take to. Lose the other two whatever I think that puts us in a good position obviously take all four obviously take three, but they take to a happy person. But what what strikes me is awesome about this again, I don't WanNa look too far ahead but right after that, you get seven games. Boston. Baltimore Fray Three Against Boston four against Baltimore. That could be another hot streak right there. So whatever happens in this series say they only take one of them. You can take solace in knowing that they're going to go back home to to Buffalo Home and face Boston and Baltimore immediately after, and they can gain significant ground right after that. So I'm not writing too much on the longevity as to what's going to happen and what decisions are going to be made for trade deadline based on this series alone because on the other end of that, they have something that can revitalize them. So again, I'll take two and be happy about it just because of what's coming up after that. Right now, the big thing they need to make sure they continue to do throughout this race series regardless of record lady to sustain some momentum and sustain the competence..

"Whatever right this second so immune medium ballpark era, you at least need somebody to carry that over, and it's GonNa be tasker playing the outfield. It's going to be him chicken Gurriel and in all reality guys. I know I've said this before, and I think you've got when the would not shock me. That Grio is one of the most athletic out of those three that he ends up being a center fielder, probably rather sooner than later especially when you're looking at what we can never bring into the table. It's kind of insulting when you're talking about that. We got guys like Travis. Shaw shot in Oh and everybody around the Infield just. Roll the dice in the outfield. Don't worry about. At bully. Now it's a pretty big talking point blood moving over there already I i. Think what happened this quickly. I guess it's taking five. You know what it does make the team better in twenty twenty, but it's GonNa make them that much better at twenty twenty one when they could be much more formidable, awesome Martin could be in the lineup and that's the. Maybe trade is on the horizon. You know. Maybe they're discussing something right now. The rockies, not the first state. In Colorado. One, not the first thing we predicted on this show either. One of Once. Yeah. It is still demos. Listened to one was how we? How do you bring Nolan Aaron Outta Toronto? That would be to perfect that is that. Is this team being a championship team? Three years of you bring in somebody like that, and if that is why they're moving somebody around already more power to him, but I would highly doubt that's the reason. They know that they know that Travis is third baseman and we saw it honestly I remember him destroying vacuuming up Paul's when he was with the Red Sox. Third Baseman on the same turf. Yes, yeah feels changed a little bit, but as far as it goes the turfed. Her part of the Ballpark is still the same, and that's what we're GONNA get. Don't let Gladis you know stature, fool you at first base, either if he's got third base, you know in stinks at first base. Guys. That's somebody that could sneak in a good conversation for being really good defensive, first baseman right right?.

"We gotta do the nineties. And there is plenty of bluejays. I had made this less than ex bluejays and so on and so forth you know. In the first few rounds lonely Attleboro John L- David cone from a different year. Things like that and then we also had. I'm the cycling through. We had a mark eichhorn sighting of Nineteen ninety-four which I thought was Kinda crazy duane ward eventual blue Jay Jose Canseco. Yes people remember that he is was a blue Jay island actually very butthurt about having to pick nineteen ninety seven Roger Clemens for my look Jimmy Key. The year after he was actually picked for the nineteen ninety-three season after he had left the Blue Jays. Unfortunately go to the The Evil Empire Carlos Delgado. I was able to sweep then and steal. Everybody forgets that. He had an insanely good year. Nineteen ninety nine. The batting average just was not quite where you picture. Carlos Delgado for normal parts of his career. We had David Wells. Fred mcgriff Dave Stewart Cecil fielder in his post Japan. Come back and yeah there was just a lot of good bluejays on this list guys and one. Guzman being one of the better late round picks my brother of all people and then Jeff Kent was one of the late picks who was traded for the Blue Jays Datacom. So it's good to see a lot of bluejays on us and I actually missed one sean. Green Ninety nine so anyway. What are you guys thing? I love this idea man if we can if we can explore the two thousands just to see what that would be. I think. That's a look the nineties for me as a golden age of baseball but the two thousands. Obviously because that's where I really became into my adulthood as a as a fan I think that'd be really really fun to explore. And I think like you're going to see as you said like incrementally though steel numbers dropped down in the power. Number's shoot up and I think you're GONNA see a lot of people like starting pitching obviously is still very valuable during this time and so it was Some closers too but other than Rivera. I don't know who else but the other day in the nineties. You gotTA think early nineties. Closer was still a forming position. Yes yes he was still closer by committee for a while. Those points like in ninety two Dwayne word pitch just as many games as Hanky who was actually picking up so but yeah if we can shoot up the two the two thousands if you want to if you wanted to. Redo the nineties. I'm totally down. But if you want to do another one with the two thousand in no. I think we do eventually if we have. I'd like to do a decade where I was actually a fan with this old enough. I forgot that guy's I don't even said how where other than I You know are you know the guy? That's the king here that came on to gloat because that was the championship prize for this whole thing with Mike winning it. I forgot where all the rest of US finished so as mentioned that radio. Scott who who was clearly rushed Mike Paul first place and then in second my brother Mr Henry. Ruin for an panic. Kerr apparently in his infant baseball research. Just at Mrs and pisses in the third place. I brought my muscle milk for for number four. My Dad the table nine wins number five on the spot and Zach Helton Appalachians finest. I hope it really does become Abreu. Even Zach Kelton himself has to make it and then Mr Corsair comes in seventh along with Johnny Genta of the officially unofficial podcast rounded out in eighth place so but fell. I can't really say got much closer than it really did. And a lot of these categories. Everybody's really missing things just by a couple of runs a few homers missing a couple steals or. Yeah exactly the the first place position in wins for example was my dad with a hundred. Sorry I take that back as always might knock with one hundred and nineteen wins and the last place team in that category had ninety one wins. So that's ninety now. It's barely any different. That's what happens when you have nothing but all stars but that just shows how critical each pick in this draft was and making sure you've got the right stuff so very cool and. I'm glad that we all got to do this. So that was a blast loved it anyways. Anybody WANNA put a book end on the nineties here before eventually come back to the reality of where baseball should be right now in playing baseball online rather than ninety so much with the double owes. I'm really curious to see how how high up Alfonso Soriano two thousand six season gets taken comes like forty forty year for him. I think Jim Edmonds like Plethora of really good seasons as well. The guy's super rated want to see how any of his seasons get taken the highest one especially when he's mostly known for his ridiculous catching skills but don't forget that Jim Edmonds guys was a perennial thirty home run guy throughout the whole you know tenure of his baseball career so that'd be very interesting and that's what we made this so much fun. I really WANNA see the fans feedback on this draft that we have here and see what everybody thinks. I think it came out really cool. And I think there's GonNa be some surprises on here for everybody going. Oh my God really so all right well fellas a next week we are back again and Brennan Paccar. You WanNa give the preview for next week show senior hosting bracket baby we cover give a little preview to the elite eight or where the final four wherever that? And you know maybe it'll come up with something else and they get like a two parter conversation and I'll just focus on the bracket but Time account with that second conversation will be all about but yeah looking forward to seeing some more results keep on voting away everybody in China on the conversation. We've gotten a few more people starting to reply to drum up some interest in talking about it and I think that's one thing that kind of missing from all the founded getting people to binion's and that's what the hell why is Kevin Clark seeded third or or just some conversation milky getting more votes. Yes so all right Mike Paul. You WanNa tell me what's going on in your world. Is the radio scout these days? So we Recorded in like four weeks now but Oh you got some isolated Yeah Yeah it's been a little bit We have a couple of Like shelled episodes that considering releasing this boy just for kicks So that might be coming up pretty soon but Otherwise I mean I think we actually like really need to record something pretty quickly at least ally will probably report something He wanted to record last week and didn't happen so I think I'll reach out to them this weekend. And just say like. Hey let your. Let's records because I mean I don't want her fans like our listeners to to forget about US still. You know that needs to happen next game.

This is a lot of fun. Thanks for having me on your part of this thing now. Sure part of the draft twitter bio okay. It's Co host of bird watching GCE podcast into twitter bio drop. No I'm just so used to thanking you guys so New Jersey. I'm not gonNA thank you anymore. And that's it no more no more no Homo Blue Jays fans. Make sure you hit us up on twitter at bird-watching juicy we are GONNA have plenty more voting for you. For the bracket we will have a wonderful show. I'M NOT SURE NEXT WEEK. So we can talk about the eventual going forward for the elite eight in the final four bracket and the wonderful team will always be here to answer all of your Blue Jay fandom and let's Talk Ninety and keep this conversation going to we will be posting the draft board with the show so you can find it on our twitter feed just like the bracket that Brennan has been doing such diligent job of updating with his buddy and until then everybody gets us where you find everywhere wherever you find your podcasting pleasures on on spotify I tunes. Gula whatever it might be and fellas. I want to figure out a way to say this at the end but I know would be we. The shows no emotion and so other than that fellas. Let's go blue Jays like always. Let's go blue Jays fans if you.
"bird" Discussed on Bird Banter with Boreal Bruce
"One of the founders of the black sorry the Black Swamp Brit Observatory Which is on the south shore of Lake Erie in Ohio and His reads are always great So that would be a book that I think people would would enjoy and A bird book that I just got in which was a one of the APA podcast suggestions but It's a book that term. I was reading about for the a lot of people use for the A. CBC for Kids and has called just Just this got county birds. The idea that helped save our feathered friends and that is by Heidi stemple and illustrated by clover Robin. I just loved the name of that name. Clover Robin it sounds. It sounds very cool and And illustrations are wonderful. I just I just got that book and haven't had a chance to read it but we're gonNA be using that to help younger kids understand it more about the about the CBC for kids so So those Prep suggestions Will help will help make the Burger in the Pavley really happy. So if you didn't have a pen when you're listening to the podcast we will add a list of those books on the podcast cast description and the list of phone numbers and contact names will be added to the description as well So once again I'd like to thank technical is Ben McPherson at BMX studios. This recording was done once again on the a snowy shores of the frozen blocks river. And if we don't get another podcast it before the big day day wishing everyone of very festive season and take care of the birds..
"bird" Discussed on Bird Banter with Boreal Bruce
"Five hundred eight. So that's That's a that's that's a lot of people participating in this in this great initiative which brings us to talking about local birds because we are getting all sorts of calls for our area people wondering where the birds are and We talked talked about this Two weeks ago at our last podcast. And there's just There is just so much food available for birds in the Bush that that And particularly further north so that Birds just have not found our area and we have no common read polls right now. We have Further north to the north part of our area. We've just started getting evening grow speaks But there's just just. There's just not a lot of birth rate now. We have woodpeckers chickpeas and a few rowing flocks of snow buntings. But so I keep telling people at this was predicted. Ron Pit away does a winter finch forecast and with the food availability ability. He predicted that we weren't going to see that. Many birds this winter so so for people that are putting food out at their theaters. You're not doing anything wrong Birds are not in peril right now. It's just a It's a food availability thing right now so but perhaps into January and February. We might start to see some Some grow speaks and Red Poles. Move into the area so There are a couple of interesting interesting birds that have shown up though In our area and engelhardt. There's a person that has a yellow warbler at their feeders. Right now on it's Very content eating Suet so which we've We've seen this happen in in the past so it's a very interesting It seems to be over in a bit of a mild spell right now but hopefully the bird will boogie so When a suicide can There is a Carolina wren that has been seen just at a place called old age chest lake which is out of our Ebert area. But that's Not too far from Tim's so that's That's it's really interesting. We had a Carolina Wren here about three years ago so And the Carolina Wren is also enjoying suet and making itself happy at at the bird feeder. So that's Every now and then we get. We'll find the Carolina. Wren will over winter so They're pretty hardy Creature so but it's very exceptional still to see to see one There's a very thrush that has been seen or seen daily So that's a bird. That's from British Columbia and every now and then we'll get one that Over winters in Ontario we had one not far from elk lake a number of years ago. And this one this very thrush is seen an just just out of It's actually outdoor. Ed Centre called Bark Lake. which is Just outside of a small town near a town called Gooderham or good or Ham As I believe the locals call it and the net is a for people trying to place that that is. And that's about a hour and a half north of Peterborough So maybe two an half hours from Toronto So that might give people a little bit of a landmark to figure it were. That bird has been seen Of the big news that that there is a purple gala Neil that was seen about four hundred kilometers kilometers north of Thunder Bay and that was in a a small community called Nascar Tanga and this purple Galileo was was someone was able to dude. It was so weak that they will just able to pick it up this bird. That's normally found in Florida Every now and then they migrate at quite a distance and end up in in northern Ontario. About for this time of year it was it was I found on November nineteenth. It was quite quite weak. They transported it to The thunderbird wildlife rescue in Thunder Bay and unfortunately the bird ended up dying. Because it just couldn't take on fluids and it was in such a week in state that it just didn't make but Still a spectacular bird to find at that time of year And quite a story that Bird from that far south ended up that far are north. So so that was unfortunate that Tam that it wasn't able to To make it so that basically basically completes our lists of birds in the area so On the topic of Bird Rehab facilities. It was a sad news that we just heard that the wild at Heart Rehab Center in Sudbury has recently closed because because of a lack of funding And that's the center that a lot of birds and Burgers that were I relying on on their great great work It's just sad that They were unable to keep Keep going so So we're kind of at a loss for where we're going to be able to assemblies in the future but We'll have to rely on facilities in the south. So so that is sir that that's too bad. On an upbeat note of great interest that we saw that gratitude Boomberg was just recognized by Time magazine as their person of the year so that that is great. News is this inspiring young lady has been making impact around the world and it is great that she is drawing attention to the climate crisis ACIS locally we have an organization called the climate action to miss coming and they just had a meeting last week and They it was quite a spirited meeting. There is about forty people at the meeting and one of the things that they are talking about is among very. There's a lot of very interesting green initiatives that They're thinking about trying to get more and more people involved. We we have quite ed population of people. That are very interested in all sorts of green initiatives and about the climate crisis. One of the things that they're talking about doing which is very action oriented and goal oriented is apparently timmins and Sudbury have submitted document to their municipalities about Getting climate change on the On the agenda The focus for For those communities with some goals and Climate Action to misgiving is GONNA get hold of those documents and present it to to the to Miss Coming Chores Council and have them considering what climate change goals We should have locally Colle- so I think that's a fantastic initiative and Hopefully that the next meeting will bring will be able to talk to some people and get And get some voices about what people think are important for us locally so So well then Greta and well well done climate action to miss coming for all the fantastic work you're doing to To help us locally take on the climate crisis Mm One the there was a an a not going to mention the name of the company because I'm not sure if they would want me to do that. I right now but I had a very interesting conversation conversation. Just the other day with With a fellow WHO's company is. They decided that they did not want to burn any brush pile so his his companies involved with converting Forcet areas that are private land as none. None of it is crown land so the the the other name for private land is patent land so basically if it's private land you can decide you wanna clear the trees and converts private land a private forest into farmland. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that. It's it's totally legal But it's been a long practice long-term practice where people cut the trees. The trees get pushed into do the trees that aren't Marketable that trees the camp take to any lumber mills they get left behind pushed in the slash piles calls and then those piles get burnt and his companies. You was well. That's just contributing more to climate change and to producing Marcio too to so they developed some machinery that basically goes in and chops up. Whatever is left? He said that they their their their plan. Is that the forest companies have to take all of the trees that are over four inches in diameter and so the ah any trees that are under that their machinery can basically chop gobble up. Whatever you WANNA call? It turned into fiber that gets turned into into the soil. That basically helps the soil so initiatives like that are are things that That they can you know pretty some hope that As practices changed there'll be less carbon that's released into the environment and UH so so I'll I'll talk to him at another time and and maybe he'll be happy that I use his company but for now I just thought I'll l.. I would sites that that the last thing that I wanted to talk about is on the ABA podcast. Today I was listening to a Christmas list of bird word bucks that people may be interested in so for the burden on the family if it was interesting because there is There are two people were talking talking boat to their favorite books. One is the lady by the name. Madonna Schulman who you could visit their website. which is ten thousand birds? She's which is very interesting website because they're basically talking about the excitement of bird adventure and bird travel and how to find birds in your area so that might be a website that people may be interested in going to visit so Donna Schulman as a book reviewer from ten thousand birds and Nate Swick had his own list. And I'm going to kind of combine the two less because they you both came up with their top five. And they're some redundancy in the two lists so So the books that they were talking about one which I I would love to get my hands on. It's I didn't know that it's called. The Peterson Reference Guide to sparrows of North America. I know that has people really tickling it there because sparrows a lot of people refer to sparrows. LBJ's little brown jobs. I have a sparrow thing. I'm not sure what it is. But each sparrow has some way to identify it as subtle as it often is but I love identifying sparrows and so that book is by fellow by name of Rick right and that's So that's Peterson's reference guide to spare the North America uh-huh so that'd be lovely to find that in a stocking. I'm sure For those photographers in the crowd There's a Buco called mastering bird photography by Marie read and they were in the podcast. They were really the exciting about this book. And so that would be for photographers. And one of the things that we're seeing as Especially on board that people can actually download pictures of birds that they've taken a rate to the mccully Website For that but it seems that a lot of people now have the feeling that especially if they find a rarity that people are GonNa want take a photograph and For those that don't have expense of cameras even getting a picture on your phone is his really worthwhile but Bird photography is huge so that for an interview that have a friend who's a into photography that would be a great great read. There's a book called Children's book which I'm going to try to get my hands on it's called old rubies birds by Maya Thompson and it's published by the Cornell lab of ornithology so that would be great because I was just Looking I have a A grand niece that That I would like to looking for for bird book and we have the fantastic local bird stores which is called Shadan wire and I'm going to be Trying to talk to them into Getting that on the shelves So that sounds like a that. Sounds like a great book Another book that's out. There is called a season in the wind and that that subtitled inside the world of Spring Migration. And that's by a very famous murder by the name of Ken Kaufman Ken Is was was instrumental. One of the founders of the black sorry the Black Swamp Brit Observatory Which is on the south shore of Lake Erie in.
"bird" Discussed on Bird Banter with Boreal Bruce
"Tom and Joanna. We happy because I was Coached that I don't need to say the. WWW and In fact sometimes uh-huh apparently I don't say all the W. So but allegedly We don't need to say the WS anymore. So I've been this'll the last time I have to talk about that so One of the interesting things about the about the I heard this On Talk and birds with Ray Brown which we've talked about that podcast. A fair bit. He was throwing it some stats on his latest. PODCASTS which I thought was was really interesting so The two thousand Eighteen Christmas Bird Count had seventy six thousand nine hundred eighty seven participants Fifty nine thousand of those were in the USA. Fourteen thousand were in Canada and the other four thousand were in In South America and in the Caribbean and some other places across the globe so so that is That's quite a lot of participants just in one year so it's So people can get a sense that it is quite widespread and and that is sir. That's really quite interesting so a couple of things that I wanted to mention at just Last weekend I had the chance to travel to To get note to do some birding with Our friend Greg grand and it was really cool to be able to To Go to another location and do some birding and Greg always tells me about birding opportunities in the gap the area and so it's really neat to be able to see places that he birds one of the things that there's the gap no hills also just Outside get notes a small range of Mountain said really I guess is must be part of the just Near the the Appalachians I guess but The he referred to get no mountains and we went there hoping to find finds the Golden Eagles but unfortunately we were able to find any goldens but But it was still a lot of fun to get out there. We did see Red Cross bill which was exciting. Winging and just there's some real interesting variances between That area which even though it's lots it's a farmland they don't seem to get a Lotta snow buntings. We did find one small flock they also had some roughly roughly Hawk and But it was just super cool to get a chance to get it with Reagan. And that's one of the. I think one of the things that is really special about birding is that it's so transportable portable and you can go anywhere to do it and then Greg was One of the things that he was really committed to was getting me to Do subverting it as many different counties as we could so that that would show up on e. bird so so it was really neat we there's lots of varied habitat because Get Noah's just as people may know is on the other side of the river. I'm so there is lots of opportunity some birds in the in in the rapids and also neat just to see some of the Some of the efforts that the local bird club has done to get up bird feeders in the area and to even put up MM lots of wood duck boxes which apparently are being used by screech owls but of the screech owls will come out and perch In the whole well when the The whole in the the boxes When things get colds to warm up but we I they weren't able to see a screech? How so so that was that was pretty cool and one of the one of the reasons are the reasons I was in the GATT? No area to begin with was I went down to My role well as president of the Anterior Bird Banding Association was to go down to To see a buyer Dr Campbell. Who's the treasurer of the Ontario Bird Banding Association and she was just retiring In her role at Canadian wildly service where she'd been there for forty forty-five years She's a tremendous lady and have a lot of respect for her and and all the things that she's accomplished over your career your and So that was wonderful to go down to her retirement and to see her received the Ginette Dean award which is the most prestigious St Jude Award that The Bird Benny sociation gives out and So that was really wonderful that barb was able to get that award very well deserved. was there I bumped into a couple of People that have an association with the Marsh and one fellows rose. Whose name is Kevin Hanna? years back. He was encouraging us to participate in a winter. Finch bending program where air we were putting color bands on common read polls and on evening and Pine Bros speaks so he was telling me that his research has been peer reviewed. He's had to make a few adjustments to to his paper that his vote up to the published. which would should be coming out in January? So we're super excited to see the results of there is what he the other thing that we were doing for. That study was We were taking a tail feather which was going to be amortized for isotope analysis us which is really interesting because when you take tail feather and They do the isotope analysis. They can Ascertain `certain where the bird originally bred so So that will be really interesting to see where the birds as we were catching up the marsh where they originally started and The other person I ran into was Chris Sharp. Who We've talked about recently. Because he was doing the research on Sandhill cranes in the Belleville area not too far from the Hilton March and Christmas telling me that they've already been finding out. A lot of information on the transmitters were putting on the birds and a They were he was saying that the Sandhills which was very unexpected Most of the sandhills that they banded left the province so they just basically once their migrations started they just kept bugging. We did have an extremely cold November So and late October. So perhaps not that unexpected but just not very characteristic of a fall migration interesting. The one of the birds showed up at a lung point. Bird of Atari of people are able to go out and see that bird so's Some very interesting that and that was raped by bird studies Canada. So that was So that was really interesting so it was nice to to bump into for those people and hear about research that is ongoing at the marsh. We did talk just momentarily about e bird and last week. I was mentioning that That we felt that the hellish immerse research and Education Center Has had an influence on Birdie the area and we're just finding that more and more people are Engaged Ebert and more engaged in birding thing and putting up feeders in the area so I did take a moment to to to. I thought it would be worthwhile seeing if I could back up that notion and I look back so so Ebert as we've mentioned before he buried is a citizen science initiative and people can put checklists Louis Online on the Ibert portal and one of the nice part about that is that people can go back and look at Past best efforts so I just went back to two thousand ten and compared to what was happening. Moving forward so In two thousand and ten There were twelve people. That were submitting Ebert checklist in the mixing area and there were one hundred nine nine species that had been identified in the area and so if we move forward from their two thousand eleven Move from fifteen some people participating to one hundred and four species two thousand twelve sub big jump to fifty seven people participating in one hundred and eighty nine species and we look to two thousand and Seventeen we had over one hundred people participating this painting and twitter and twenty four species were identified and so far this year. Were over one hundred. People submitting checklist. T. Bird and were at at two hundred and fifteen species so when you contrast that that two hundred fifteen species just nine years back to two thousand and ten where we mentioned. We had one hundred and nine with only twelve people sitting checklists that I think that really speaks volumes to How birding is really? He caught on in the area and a number of the murders that we've had This year are Burger Center out of the area that have been attracted to the area for For various reasons and I just Yeah so I think it's It says something to the effort that the that the the marshes done And one of the things that I was able to find when I was looking for that data on Ebert was something that really it caught. My attention is an I I don't know my way around Ebert as much as some of our local burgers Mark Milton to surreal expert on E.. Burt so we should I'm going to endeavour to get mark On the podcast at some point so I'll have to entice awesome somehow to get in here but I'm kind of of great interest to me was I looked at the countries that submit the most checkless so a not really that surprising The United States So far this year there's been thirty nine almost forty million Ryan checklists submitted The states have submitted four and a half million Canada right now. We are in second at seven hundred. Forty six thousand thousand India's at third two hundred seventeen thousand. Australia is almost at two hundred thousand followed by Spain. United Kingdom Columbia Taiwan Costa Rica and Mexico but when it comes to species that are actually cited The number one country for species that have been identified is Columbia at one thousand seven hundred. Thirty one followed by Peru at one thousand seven hundred nineteen Brazil. Where of course I should say of course but Brazil as a as an area of big concern with With all the fires in the Amazon They have one thousand six hundred and forty. Three species Ecuador's fourth at one thousand five hundred and thirty one Indonesia's fifth at one thousand four hundred thirty five followed by by Bolivia. One thousand two hundred thirty nine. India had one thousand one hundred ninety two followed by China one thousand one Canady four Venezuela one thousand and eighty one and Mexico at a thousand and four to put that into perspective. Canada is fortieth with five hundred twenty six species and the USA is twelfth at nine hundred turned twenty eight species so you can see. There is a huge amount of birds in central and South America which has all sorts of migratory it concerns with climate change and land use practices. So it's so I thought when I came across that that is that super interesting but it really does show how bird is a international citizen Science Initiative. And it's phenomenal. I Don t find what the total number checklist is of all time but to see just this year that we've had thirty nine million seven hundred sixty three thousand. Six hundred and eighty eight checklist bliss done and the species for worldwide the species ten thousand.
"bird" Discussed on Bird Banter with Boreal Bruce
"It has bells in it? Yeah. That, yeah, that's an unusually smells like like pepper from the bears. I season so Christie, you've met, because Chris's it's kinda neat. I've traveled with Chris, too long point bird observatory we often get to go down together to the -tario, bird banding association meeting. Everyone's always happy to see Chris. He's been to number of stations. And, and Chris, you always speak favorably about the Marsh, which I liked seven you can compare the merch others stations. Maybe just give people a sense of how you because you have to tell me that the marshes unique compared to and every station, I, I should make sure that people realize that all the stations are very neekam. They're all doing, great work. But you often, tell me that the marshes your favorite. Yeah. Well, yeah, the marshes definitely become my home. My. Home base. My home place. Though there's so many wonderful things that I love about the March one thing I love about it is the outreach to people were always just have we just have an amazing opportunity of the March to share what we're doing with a lot of people and I really enjoy that. Sometimes if you come into the Marsha might seem a little frantic, but I love sharing stuff and I love how. I just love how we do that. I love the diversity of programs. We have at the Marsh were always, whether we're monitoring winter finches when it's ridiculously cold, and we're enjoying one of those lovely northern Ontario winters or were banding owls in the middle of the night, or, or monitoring hummingbird migration, or a songbird migration is just there's always something going on this, very rare. There's only a few months of the year with his nothing really happening on the surface of the March that there's almost always something happening. So that's enjoyable and then just a great crew of people who are kind and, and, and dedicated to virgin and just we're passionate about what they do is a great makes for great atmosphere. Also. That's perfect. Thanks, thanks, Chris. Thanks for joining us, and we're going to be hearing from Chris in future of associate because as I mentioned he is there bender and charge were very fortunate that Chris. Was able to join us for another another spring because last year we're pretty certain Christmas thinking that his his path was taking away from from banding, but we're very fortunate have Chris or Vander charge and we really feel that the next week is going to be an exciting week for capturing bird. So, so I'm sure we're going to be having Chris coming in on a future associates, Chris, those also. Thanks for excellent. So now we're going to we're going to bring Greg into the air chair here, and we'll hear few noses as he steps rate in, so Greg, thanks for coming, and, and we're very fortunate, Greg has been. So, I'll, I'll sort of start with maybe the same question that because of my memory gaps here, maybe could just give us. Let us know how long you been coming, and maybe where that all began. Haven't verse for a little while. And I'd been nomadic biologist here. And they're all over the country. And at one point, I'd met Murph at a conference any mentioned there, quite a few ELS around in. So I always had the Martian mind that Nash would come along. And if I myself working in Sudbury, had some vacation time and decided and that week, Murph sent out an Email looking for people new, volunteer accommodations available anti book, the week of vacation time came over to Marsh immediately fell in love. There's so many birds so much diversity, and there's no crowds, like you'd get at some of the Severn Ontario stations or any of the more populous regions of Canada. And it was basically a. Decided I'd come back as frequently as I could. And I've been doing that since two thousand fifteen I think, okay, so sounds right. And, and we're really fortunate because Greg has he's been to other bedding stations as well, and he has it's fantastic. When we can get a volunteer that has so much skill and extraction and understanding Howie agents expert, so we're really fortunate that great can. And when you come here usually comes for ten days spring, and fall. So and as Greg mentioned that a real game changer for us was the ability to house of volunteers, so without without that ability. And again, I'm no I to be doing this every podcast, but. A huge thank you to all the people that supported our fundraising efforts to, to get tired our trailer. We called it the raise the roost and without your support, we wouldn't we wouldn't the volunteers that I mentioned that here this year, we we'd have no way to be able to, to comedy them. But and one of the things that Greg has really brought to us is he loves to use audio lures. So an audio leaders to me sounds like such an unusual term to say using playing a call to attract birds, and, and Greg is exceptional at that. So doing this speak to that at all. Well, depending on the situation, you want to Banderas, passively. But if you want to target certain hard to capture species, you may have to go outside of the box in for my master's work. I worked on Whipple's and they don't just Ren hit the Nezar low-density. They roam huge areas. And so you don't if you don't use lure you can't catch them. And so, at the March, we have a number of these species, including some of the Marsh birds like the rails Soro's Virginia rails. They won't normally fly into a mist net, but you can actually lure them into a just a walk in trap. If you put the speaker behind that, they'll walk in, and then you can capture them. And so a lot of these more elusive species can e captured different ways other than the standardized methods. Yeah. Let's those Uttley perfect. And one of the things that Greg has really excited. Past volunteers at the Mercian. I. I always think about tests therapies mirror in last year. And how excited she was when we caught a billion would pecker and which is a bird that I without the audio Lewer, we'd only ever caught one and it's, it's certainly. Yeah. So it's and it's it's a great technique to be able to, to help catch. Now, one of the challenges with using audio layers is, it's hard to have them as part of a banning protocol. So sometimes it's especially when you're doing your masters with whipper will kinda magin pass. So that's the term that they use as passive netting. And as an will just to, to speak to that for moment is back when they used to bandsaw wets, these just put nets up. So I can't imagine an analogy we use audio lure. So we play the solid call and I can't imagine. The amount of research in understanding on solid populations. We've gained is incredible. So without the Lura kept imagine what we would do y'all with saw, let's actually used thing that it was threatened species were extremely rare until they found these volume lures, what that allowed is more accurate representation of these solid populations. And it's allowed us figure out over time. The population dynamics oh, saw west go through cycles. Every four years, they follow a small mammal populations. But before then with just passive netting, and there were so few captures that knowing actually knew what was going on with them. They just thought they were quite rare. It's just that they're very hard to catch without and they're small they hide in holes in trees, and they're really hard to find. So people thought their rare, we don't see them, therefore, they're in trouble. But it's not wasn't an actual reflection until they started. The audio lors to figure it out what the metro state was. Yeah. So, so I think maybe what, what we might potentially see with using the lure with other species, despite the issues with protocols is that we may just find that that may be more effective way to, to catch them. And one of the one of the one of the things that I think may be a reason that Greg likes coming into the Marsh, and it's becoming harder and harder every years that when, when a bender gets a chance to ban the bird for the first time as for his abandoned tick. And when Greg, I came we're able to get him, lots of banning ticks, and now it's getting a little bit harder. Definitely I I'm reaching kind of Poletto for the region. I've gotten a lot of the local specialties. I remember my first time over here. Murph has a bag takes out a Kingfisher Greg. Have you done a Kingfisher before? Kingfisher's are rare any station. And I was really pleased in, like very thankful that Murphy gave me the opportunity to ban one of these Kingfisher's. And then the next bag was Greg, have you done a kestrel before. And it left a very positive first impression on the Marsh, and probably a come over a bit more, but even without definitely would've kept on coming simply due to the diversity that great crew up here. It's fantastic area work with also great. The of may be of the other thing that the I should mention that's become a bit of an interesting. An attribute we call it a cursor what it is but of the day after the less two years, three years three, so the last three years after Greg has left the very next day. We've caught a species called Nelson sharp tailed Sparrow, and Greg has really wanted to veal to capture and van one of those birds. So I so hopefully we're really hoping this year while he's here that he's going to get a chance to we were yesterday. We caught a Kennedy and I was really hoping that it was gonna be a bending tick for Greg, but he told me. An amazing Canada, Jay. Did I say great ages? I think I did again. It's a bad habit. Okay. So that's an aside, a Greg Telser Kennedy jas story Murphy's quite excited with the candidate j and took it out of the bag. And like I said, someone else can have it. I've done one before and asked me where I was working fort McMurray and won. The crews, I was working with asked me, what I wanted, and I said, I'd like Canada, Jay and maybe a couple of western tanners and on the first net round, we had a Canada Jay and second with three of these most three beautiful western Tanner's with flaming orange heads and jet black wings and a bright yellow body. It's one of those once in a lifetime experience the of that happening are astronomical. It just happened to be my wishlist that day. So when Greg mention that yesterday to us, we said, we'll come on just tell us what you want, like will maybe maybe your luck will baterial is into some, some Vert. So, so the other thing is that Greg has an amazing job. So could you explain your your job to us? Yeah. So I'm the collections met assistant collections manager at the Canadian museum nature, I am in charge of birds and mammals. So I managed the national collection. Isis graduate students said researchers with any loans from Israel's at the museum for my mice action. I, acquire new material usually through window kills these days. Unfortunately, we have a lot of birds hitting windows. But it we put them to us when we. We can road. Kill's Andras natural causes of death. I've had a lot of things. Vol, even people at the Marsh have picked up Burs from window kills Roque Brogel weasels and stuff like that for me. When I come up, now, one of local conservation officers kept a swan which had been mistakenly shot for. Goose. And so it's another part of my job. Not as pleasant in the banding, but we put him to get used any gets used for research. Greg jobs in incredible. I had the pleasure of Greg was taking me around to show me a lot of the specimens that they've been able to.
"bird" Discussed on Bird Banter with Boreal Bruce
"We are exploring all sorts of funding applications to make that money go even further. And there's some exciting news up coming, but I've told not to talk about it yet, so I don't want to, I don't want to jinx it, so we're so we're going to be looking forward to to that coming up. I wanna talk about snow buntings once more because seem that people from, if people have heard earlier episodes, they would have heard me whining about the lack of snow buntings and, and even the placement that we've put our feeding site out by by our river hosts in Hilliard township and which isn't, it's not very far from the Marsh. So, but I'm happy to report that today we Bennett, our thousand snow-bunting yesterday, banded one hundred seventy. The to today, we banded one hundred fifty four. So we did almost a third of the birds just in the last two days and what we may find in the north is that even though we do have small flocks of snow buntings throughout the winter that image, just be that we have to be patient and wait for the spring, because it seems that that's the time of the year that we get the biggest concentration of snow buntings so far. We haven't had a foreign bird, which to us, what that means is a bird that wasn't bene- by s but banded by another another banner at another site. So we haven't had one of those, which I've been finding as a little bit odd because usually with that number of birds, we usually would get, get a foreign recapture, but they didn't ban a lot of birds in southern Ontario because the there wasn't very much snow in the south this year. And a lot of Bandres in the south were very frustrated. David lamble, usually gets between eight and ten thousand birds. I don't believe even got a thousand this year. I know there was some big days that they had Nancy Ferber out of Ruthin had one day where she banded two hundred sixty buntings. And so that was great. So, but that was not the norm. So we were really excited though that we, we caught a bird yesterday that initially was banded by us at our Dawson point site. That was initially banded in January, the twelfth of two thousand fourteen it was banded as what we call an after second-year mail. And so that suggested that bird would be potentially could be eight or or could be eight years or older because it would have hatched two years previous to that zone two thousand twelve so, so the interesting. To, to know that we are so very sad about that. And we also caught a bird yesterday. That was banded at Kerns public this year, and it's interesting that the birds for them to the, the distance to, to fly to find another feeding area isn't isn't very onerous. So it's yes. So that was that was quite interesting. And now of great interest, always when you ban bird, his wondering if the potential for were that bird could show up. And there's the suggestion that a lot of the bird's still from our area. We have had some birds set of been recaptured in Quebec. So it's a it's a great curiosity to know to know where they're going. So some some day when we can put some GPS trackers on them. We'll be able to figure out exactly where they're going, but they cost about two thousand dollars each. So we'll have to get some significant funding before. We could participate in that, but even even be able to be part of the Canadian snow-bunting network is, is very gratifying. And it'll be interesting to see if where some of these bird show up, there was a bird, that was banded in wealth years ago that showed up in Greenland. So that would that would certainly be very exciting. One of our birds could could make its way to Greenland. But we've had as mentioned, we have a thousand opportunities for those birds to show up somewhere, so that so it's been a great been a great spring of Benning snow buntings. What at want to talk about as well. I wanted to romo's done here, but I wanted to, to mention that there's a new organization that's just formed in the two mrk Marya that call themselves climate change mrk Ming, and they had a what they called a climate change cafe and the library of Tim assuming district secondary school last week. And it was it was fantastic. It was it was great to see their a lot of youth there. And there is some of very informative presentations, and there is some breakout sessions, where people had a chance to talk about some of their concerns and some some remedies that people could contemplate on an individual basis. And. And it it's it gave me a gave me a sense of hope, but I have to be honest the when they are making the presentations. It was it was a real Certa slap in the face that when we really start to contemplate, what's happening with the with your climate, and, and, and it really, really drove home. The message that it's something that and something that we need to do something about. And I, I guess one of the things that really hit home for me was there is a young lady from Norway that. I think everybody seems to know about I can't even remember her name. I don't wanna pick just a an iconic Norwegian name. I think your name vitamin Greta, but not I'm not sure. And apparently everyone has seen this little Ted talk that she was on. L L throw it out there for in case somebody hasn't come across it. But so they could they could Google, Google that Ted talk. But what what she was talking about which really got my attention, was that she when she first heard about this, when she was ten years old. She heard people talking about a climate crisis, and she couldn't understand why it wasn't on the news every night. And why it was that the, the best scientists in the world. Weren't working with governments to try to make a change. And, and I, I guess that's the notion that, that perhaps, I've been a little sleep sleep at the wheel on is that I really haven't thought of it in those terms that it's an absolute crisis. But when when you start to look at the data the projections, it's, it's certainly that and that's one of the things that people the most common questions, I get about our bird research is what signs were seeing that the birds are being impacted by climate, so it's, so it's a real shadow to the folks that are part of that to climate change to misgiving. Good on you, folks. And, and again, it's great to see so many kids involved in. And, and hopefully the group will be able to make some local changes so that so we can help mitigate some of those changes that we know are coming. So in closing here an another shout to the technical wiz, Ben macpherson's, thanks for putting on another episode at tabby MEC studios and other episode of bird banter with broil Bruce, signing off take care of the birds..
