On the Tuesday Morning Show John and Heidi welcome back Pam Perry, a retired non-game wildlife biologist for the Minnesota DNR, who joins them to talk about birds.  Pam talks about the rare sighting of long-tailed ducks and tells us more about this Arctic duck while recalling a story of one that was included in the Pillager Christmas Count in 2007.

Pam tells us her bird feeder has been slow this year with very few species coming in, especially a decline in finches.  John and Pam discuss John’s favorite bird the raven.  They talk about this smart bird with its intriguing behaviors and acrobatic flight.  Listen below for more bird talk.
