There are times when you want to get your birding fill, but you can’t go outside. You might be stuck inside because of the weather, especially during the winter months, or because of responsibilities at home. In those cases, listening to podcasts is a great way to still be connected, especially for birders.
And luckily for all the birders, there are a ton of birding podcasts to choose from. Some are super short (a few minutes) while others can be hours long, so you can find almost any podcast length that fits your needs.
And of course, each bird podcast has its own unique style and personality, so you won’t ever be out of the loop on the latest bird news.
So without further ado, here are the 8 podcasts about birds that you should definitely listen to.
