I just spent almost two delightful weeks birding in the tropical paradise of Trinidad and Tobago with Megan Crewe of Field Guides Birding Tours Worldwide.
Megan lives birds. Her almost encyclopedic knowledge of the birds of the world, their conservation status, and their habitat needs is astounding!
So I thought we’d pick her brains so she could share some of this wisdom with us.
Listen to my interview with Megan Crewe here:
You’ll hear her thoughts about:
- how each of us can help birds by creating welcoming habitats for them in our gardens
- how we can help protect bird habitat around the world
- why birding in Trinidad and Tobago is so rewarding
- how bird populations in this tropical island country have changed over the years
- and so much more!
Megan Crewe has been a birding tour leader for the past 15 years. She’s travelled around the world teaching others about birds and their habitats. She’s also a passionate wildlife gardener, and her Cape May garden has been featured on Pat Suttons’s wildlife garden tours for many years. In fact, I first met Megan on one of Pat’s tours and had the pleasure of visiting Megan and her husband Mike’s wildlife garden and meadow at their Cape May home.
