May show features spring and bird calls

The hills (and woods) are alive with the sounds of bird music and Birdwise in the month of May pays tribute to a few of the more chattier birds of spring. Host Tom Schooley introduces the show's sponsor (the white-crowned sparrow) while Burt Guttman points out the small features of song birds that make them easier to identify. Sheila McCartan reports on the satellite tracking of godwits migration in the Pacific and provides a timely list of local bird field trips. And Featherman Phil Kelley forecasts what birds to look for in May. Birdwise also takes viewers on a trip through Burfoot Park where Tom offers a short lesson on birding by ear. Birdwise, a 30-minute independently produced television show, airs on commercial-free, TCTV Channel 22, Sundays at 1 p.m. and Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. The show is produced with the assistance of volunteers from the Black Hills Audubon Society and the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge. The new edition premieres May 3.
Thank you.
