We are reporting LIVE from several locations in Northwest Ohio. This area is a world renowned migrant trap during spring migration of songbirds. Many people flock here to get their fill of warblers and other little gems at this time of year. I am also attending the Biggest Week in American Birding 2018 Festival, now in it’s ninth year, that takes place at the same time. This festival is hosted by the Black Swamp Bird Observatory, under the guidance of Executive Director, Kimberly Kaufman and an incredible team of staff and numerous volunteers.

Many people from around the world agreed to be interviewed by me for this episode of BirdCallsRadio and they tell us why they come to this area for this segment called “Biggest Week 2018 Moments”.

This is one of my favorite places to visit annually in the spring as it always fills my heart and soul with hope seeing these beautiful songbirds that make the long northward journey from the Caribbean, Central and South America to their breeding grounds.

I look forward to next year’s 10th Anniversery of the Biggest Week 2019 that will take place from May 3-12, 2019.

Thank you to all the wonderful people who took time out from birding and were kind enough to stop and share their thoughts with me on this episode #131 of BirdCallsRadio™.
