Bird watching has increased during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This is A-State Connections on KASU. I’m Johnathan Reaves. This is the weekly segment called “A-State Connections and Create@State: Making Connections That Count”. Last week, we celebrated the 100th episode of the Create@State podcast. One of the listener favorites of the podcast was the September 2019 episode of the A-State Bird Observatory. Today, we talk to Associate Professor of Ecology Dr. Than Boves and PhD student Alix Matthews to get an update and to discuss how bird watching has increased during the COVID-19 pandemic.
