Bring Birds Back
Paid content

Bring Birds Back

Like many birders, Tenijah Hamilton discovered her love of birds during the pandemic. Now, she invites birders to join her in appreciating the beauty and mystery of the birds all around us and take action on their behalf. On Bring Birds Back, Tenijah speaks with bird enthusiasts from many different backgrounds, identities, and communities -- helping birders and bird lovers of all levels learn how to help bring birds back.

Season 4 is out now! The central theme of this season is the impact that humans have on birds, and the episodes challenge the idea of zero-sum mentalities — the idea that for one group to win, another group has to lose. Listen to Bring Birds Back, a podcast from the popular radio show BirdNote, on, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, or anywhere you get your podcasts.
