Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Ivan, Gloria, and others dominate the boys’ conversation in this episode. They discuss the impact of severe storms on people, birds, and birding as well as the possible extinction of birds such as the Cozumel thrasher and the Barbuda warbler. Also discussed is how we birders can help weather-devastated communities with our ecotourism dollars in the future. Finally, Bill has a musical recommendation: “So You Want to Be an Outlaw,” the new album from Steve Earle & the Dukes.
