Season 5 of Birding-by-ear Podcast "Songbirding" Premieres May 2, 2022

Press Release · Hamilton, OH, USA ·

A fifth season of “Songbirding” (, a nature documentary series focused on songbirds, is coming in May. This new season is an acoustic exploration of a rarely explored corner of the Bruce Peninsula National Park, in Ontario, Canada.

“Songbirding” is aimed at an audience of both birders and general nature enthusiasts alike, but also attracts a substantial audience that just likes to listen and relax.

The first four seasons of Songbirding have been praised for their authenticity, atmosphere, and practical educational content about birds and the songs they sing. Season four, “On Territory” featured the breeding territories of various bird species of the Great Lakes region.
