For the Birds Radio Program: Odd-tober!
A late Ruby-throated Hummingbird and Rose-breasted Grosbeak? More record-breaking numbers of Blue Jays? Flamingos in Wisconsin? This month is already on track to be an outlier.
CORRECTION A newspaper article that I consulted got the name of the St. Marks NWR flamingo wrong, but I didn’t discover this until I’d recorded the program. The name is not Phineas Phlamingo but Pinky. Also, the bird turned up there after Hurricane Michael in 2018, not in 2019.
