Bird Watcher’s Digest Editor Dawn Hewitt provided the keynote presentation for eighth annual (and first-ever virtual) Hatchie BirdFest, on April 24, 2020. Her talk was a nod to her beloved, late boss, Bill Thompson, III, who occasionally presented a perpetually evolving talk titled “The Perils and Pitfalls of Bird Watching.” Dawn’s is an informative celebration of the thrills and challenges of assembling North America’s oldest popular birding magazine. This podcast also features a beautiful and moving original song, written by Bob Raines for the 2020 Hatchie BirdFest, and performed along with Sam Raines, titled “All That’s Left of Eden.”
