Kristi Dranginis: How to Know the Birds
Jan 13, 2020 Season 1 Episode 16
Ron Waline / Kristi Dranginis

In this episode of the podcast I speak with naturalist, herbalist, and field ornithologist Kristi Dranginis. Kristi is a mentor and educator for people in all kinds of naturalist skills, but especially in the world of birding and bird language. During Kristi and I’s conversation we discuss the power of birds and developing the skills to know them. We talk specifically about building relationships with birds and how to truly look at each bird. Kristi is gracious enough to let us in on some of her unconventional secrets and techniques for learning about the birds and explains why the instant gratification that comes from immediately learning a bird’s name through apps or other methods is actually the bane to a budding birder’s progress in learning.
