The birds traveling to or through Iowa this spring

Talk of Iowa, hosted by Charity Nebbe

Spring blooms wouldn't feel complete without the sounds of birds to complement them — some returning from their winter homes and others on their way to destinations in the north.

On this Talk of Iowa birding hour, co-owner of Wild Birds Unlimited Todd Burras and Young Birders of Iowa executive director Tyler Harms join host Charity Nebbe to talk about the birds people may be spotting in Iowa this spring and answer birding questions.

Wild Birds Unlimited is a financial supporter of Iowa Public Radio.
