With Ben Lizdas

Interested in learning what all the buzz is about bird watching? Join Ben Lizdas from Bird Watcher's Digest for crash course on how to become a birder. We will take a brief look at the world of North American birds and talk about the tools and knowledge that a birder uses to enjoy them.   Have binoculars? Bring them!
