Yeah, On Point is one of my favorite shows to listen to on NPR. They had a good talk about the "The Big Year" movie and book. I think one of our own VTBIRD local celebrities made a call into the nationally broadcast show. Someone named "Bryan" called talking about the subtleties of watching some of the more common birds, like Black-capped Chickadees and Ring-billed Gulls i believe. He also mentioned running a birding tour company (Bryan Pfeiffer??). I haven't seen the movie yet but love the interesting cast they chose for the film. Seems like it would be hilarious to watch Steve Martin, Jack Black, and Owen Wilson interact with each other.
