WBU Podcast

In this episode, John and Brian are talking about the birds of prey that you may see in your backyard. Who might show up and how can you tell what they are? They are joined by a birds of prey expert, Will Schaust (yes, he is John’s son) who shares some fun information.  You’ll learn how you can deal with any unwanted raptors and how to keep the birds in your yard safe.
