Just returned from yet another trip to Costa Rica, Ben spares a few minutes from his travels to chat with Bill about umbrellabirds, sunbitterns, pearl kites, U.S. birder demographics, birder types, the joys of guiding casual novice birders, and the time his mother-in-law got busted trying to smuggle cheese internationally. The boys also talk about upcoming Reader Rendezvous adventures in Florida and Colorado. Finally, Bill has a throw-back musical recommendation: Squeeze: Singles 45’s and Under.
