7 - Ornithology with James Maley

unnamed.jpg

Birds! Horned screamers! Winged pirates! Professional bird-person and all around cool dude James Maley joins Alie to talk about bird mating, monogamy, the cult of ornithology, absurd birds, parrots that are smarter than your friends' kids, a surprising fact about owl ears and history's most tragically zealous bird nerds. If you love birds, you'll be at home. If a bird did you dirty, you'll open your heart and learn to love again. For photos of the Moore Lab of Zoology, follow Instagram.com/mlzbirds.

Also, I typically hyperlink these, but it's 4:27am and I haven't been to bed and I'm catching a flight to Arizona in a few hours, so please accept my sincere regrets that these aren't hyperlinked. I would rather take the time to type up an excuse than hyperlink them right now. The gall.
