    If you want to hear For the Birds on your public radio station, tell them about it! There is no charge for non-profit radio stations to broadcast it. I do ask that stations contribute a portion of any underwriting that they get, to help defray my costs since I do the program entirely without pay, but even sharing underwriting is not required. The only requirement is that stations let me know if they are running it. I'd also appreciate learning how listeners like it.

    For more information, e-mail Laura Erickson.



All these public stations carry For the Birds. Click on any of them for more information. Some have live streaming so you can hear ALL their fine programming at your computer!


For the Birds features bird recordings generously provided by

Nature Sound Studio
I can't say enough good things about the quality of recordings from these two sources. If "Lang Elliott" or "Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology" is on a nature CD, it's going to be a good one!
