Return of the Birds

Hosted ByPeter Meddick

A little escape in the middle of your commute. If you're feeling shut in, shut down or shut out, let the birds carry you away. Return of the Birds is the long-form, serialized audiobook podcast of WAKE ROBIN by John Burroughs. First published in 1871, WAKE ROBIN is a detailed nature study of various birds’ northern migration in the spring. Paired with premier bird vocalizations from the Macaulay Library at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology bird vocalizations, Return of the Birds delivers something something truly delightful and wholly unexpected.
