Nature In The City: Woodcocks & Chorus Frogs

On this Thursday's Central Standard, a closer look at Nature in the City, from the courtship displays of Woodcocks (a.k.a. Timberdoodles) to the sounds of Western Chorus Frogs.

Enjoy our look at nature this time of year with our guests Larry Rizzo, natural history biologist, and Joe Werner, biologist and urban ecologist.

CONGRATULATIONS:
Listener Dave Tanner solved our Nature in the City Quiz first, correctly identifying the Green-Tailed Towhee we posted to Facebook. He's now our official Central Standard Bird Watcher of the Month.
