This spring, BirdNote is asking our listeners for their support. In these five shows, get a glimpse behind the scenes into how BirdNote is made, and learn how your support allows us to bring joy to our listeners and spark appreciation for birds. BirdNote is an independent nonprofit that partners with local radio stations to bring a moment of wonder to your day — every day. That’s why for just one week, we’re asking you to support BirdNote with a donation at BirdNote.org. The episodes will run either the first or last week of May, during BirdNote's Spring Fundraiser.
