A Birding TV Series

Readers of this blog might be interested in a new TV series about birding called Birding Adventures. It premiered last weekend on the Fox Sports Network and is also available through the new Untamed Sports channel. The show follows James Currie, a South African birder, as he travels around the world to find unusual and rare bird species.

The Fox Sports Network has chosen an unfortunate time to air it. On Saturday morning at 7:30-8:00 am, most birders are likely to be out birding or getting ready to leave. On Untamed Sports, the show airs Mondays at 3:30 and 11 pm and Thursdays at 11:30 am and 7:30 pm. Those times seem more likely to attract birders, at least if that station is available.
