Celebrating Migratory Birds, By Day And Year

For 25 years now, people enthusiastic about keeping birds on the planet have celebrated World Migratory Bird Day.  One teensy little problem: birds don't all migrate at the same time, so the day has been observed on different dates in different parts of the world. 

So many organizations just observe the Year of the Bird.  Klamath Bird Observatory in Ashland works to protect birds and educate people about them.  Executive Director John Alexander returns to The Exchange to talk about day, year, and observatory.
