The Bureau of Land Management released a new policy today in an effort to decrease hazards to migratory birds. The policy states that all pipes, like fences, signposts, survey markers and vents, must be capped or screened by employees. The BLM estimates that over 100,000 birds could be saved from getting trapped.

Birds captivate us humans – their beauty, song, and just perhaps, the fact that while we cannot, they can fly.  As head of the Montana Audubon Society, Steve Hoffman knows something about birds. He joins Brian Kahn on this week's "Home Ground Radio".

Amy Cilimburg talks with naturalist and Lolo National Forest Wildlife Interpreter Sue Reel about native bees, the plants they need, why we need pollinators, and the colorful guides Sue developed.

Amy also speaks with Amy Seaman – Amy's colleague at Montana Audubon – about cool birds.

In Other Birds

"In Other Words," Tuesday, September 17th, 2013: It's the "In Other Birds" Edition. Amy Cilimburg of Montana Audubon takes us on a bird tour of western Montana, talking to ornithologists, bird aficionados, and amateur birders to learn what's happening with our feathered friends in fall in Montana. What are the stories behind the birds we observe this time of year, and who are the patient women birders who find them?

A new report finds a variety of birds are - and likely will be well into the future - facing significant climate-related challenges.
