BIRDPEDIA A Brief Compendium of Avian Lore

by | Read by P.J. Ochlan

Contemporary Culture • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

The enthusiastic P.J. Ochlan sounds like an announcer as he narrates ornithologist Leahy's "teaser" for potential birders. Leahy curates a selection of alphabetical entries about birds and birding to encourage listeners to join the 48 million birders in the United States. There's a newsy tone to Ochlan's voice as he tells of a bird colliding with an airplane. He is amusing as he rattles off the many names for the ruddy duck, and he adds to the humor in a droll entry on birds in fiction. Occasionally, an entry falls flat due to Ochlan's narrative style, but Leahy's passion and humor usually shine through. Information comes in random chunks as the key words come up, but the approach serves Leahy's purpose of piquing curiosity. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2021]
