Date: 
Thursday, May 31, 2012 - 11:00am

Writer, teacher and mentor JON YOUNG has written a book about looking at birds like no other. WHAT THE ROBIN KNOWS: HOW BIRDS REVEAL THE SECRETS OF THE NATURAL WORLD takes the reader into the world of “deep bird language”.  By learning the behaviors and vocalizations of the birds found immediately around us we can begin to know individual birds. The calls and flights that birds make when a cat on the hunt enters their territory or when a Cooper’s Hawk flies overhead are very different and you can learn these variations. This approach to the natural world around us is Inspired by techniques used for hundreds of years by Native Americans and other indigenous peoples. Tune in and learn about starting out in your own backyard in particular favorite sit spot and how to learn to open your senses to the complex bird life that surrounds you.

Al grew up listening to the music of the 40’s on his father’s EH Scott radio and 78 records. Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman were family favorites. This is first experience in the broadcasting field and allows him to dig into his closet of old vinyls and share them with his audience on the Sunday afternoon edition of the Jazz Matinee.
