September episode begins run on September 2

Birdwise Video Magazine - September 2007
28 min 45 sec - Aug 28, 2007
Featherman Phil Kelley fills in for Birdwise host Tom Schooley (currently on assignment) for the September edition of Birdwise, Thurston County's video magazine on birds and birding. September's bird of the month is the cedar waxwing. Professor Burt Guttman discusses the two types of breeding strategies: birds who produce many precocial young capable of leaving the nest almost immediately and birds who produce fewer young but have to nurture them through a more dependent period. The show then covers the efforts that killdeer go through to protect their nest, including faking a broken wing (Filmed at Capital Lake Park). The September Birdwise also offers the usual news and calendar of events by Sheila McCartan. The show airs Sundays at 1 p.m. and Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. on Channel 22. But you can watch it now (albeit in lower resolution) on Google Video:
