In the Pacific Northwest, we often see a lot of shorebirds as vagrants in the fall. We search for a recurring Sharp-tailed Sandpiper at Fernhill Wetlands, talk about the increase in WhatsApp usage in the birding community, and why sewage wetlands make a great recreational location for many types of users!
Tim Appleton from Global Birding kicks off our show talking about the upcoming Global Bird Weekend - which is happening October 17-18, 2020.
