June Birdwise editing done, ready for premiere

We taped the June and July studio shots at the same time because of scheduling difficulties in July. I finished editing the June show this weekend. As with the May show, there is a pre-show video of a red-breasted sapsucker tapping hard on a douglas fir. The shot divides to show a burrowing owl responding to the sapsucker's knocking with the question: Whoooo is there?

The June show offers cross-species mating (well more accurately cross-species brooding, called "mixed brood") We also do a feature on the do do bird. Our featured bird site is Ellis Cove Trail in Priest Point Park and our bird of the month is the winter wren. We also have a rather disgusting little video of a robin removing a fecal sac from one of its babies. All that and more starting Sunday June 3. Birdwise airs Sundays at 1 p.m. and Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. on Thurston Community Television Channel 22.
