BirdNote strives to transport listeners out of the daily grind and into the natural world with outstanding audio programming and online content. The stories we tell are rich in sound, imagery, and information - connecting the ways and needs of birds to the lives of listeners.

BirdNote shows are aired on public radio stations around the country every day and can be found online at any time. Each show is scheduled to coincide with the time of year when it's possible to see or hear the featured bird. We inspire people to listen, look, and exclaim, "Oh, that's what that is!"

The content BirdNote produces is intended to educate and motivate people to care about the natural world. Through our stories, we hope that listeners will experience a deeper, richer relationship with nature - and that their lives and the lives of birds will be enriched.
