Radio Sausalito Debuts New Birdwatching Show Thursdays
Radio Sausalito has put up quite a squawk this week as they trumpet the premiere of Bay Birds, the first radio show to celebrate the incredible variety of birds in and around Richardson's Bay.
(Why "Richardson's Bay" and not "Richardson Bay"? This was its original name. An old California State declaration decades ago cut the "'s" off all the place names on state maps. History-conscious locals often use the old name out of deference to the original terminology. This interruption brought to you by the Sausalito Historical Society, but blame the editors rather than the SHS for the manic habit of covering two topics in one post!)
The show is a collaborative production by Radio Sausalito and the Richardson Bay Audubon Center and Sanctuary, and is hosted by the Center's Education Director, Wendy Dalia. Each episode will introduce you to some of the wonderful winged wildlife in the San Francisco Bay Area and explain how to identify some of the most common coastal and inland species.
Bay Birds takes wing every Thursday on Radio Sausalito. Listeners in Sausalito can tune in at the top of every hour at 1610 AM on the radio. The show can also be heard across Marin County at 4:00 PM on Cable TV channel 26.
Past episodes can be downloaded from the station's website and are available worldwide as a podcast from the iTunes Music Store (search for 'Bay Birds').
Radio Sausalito is a non-profit organization and can be supported through th is page. We believe that we're very lucky to be able to have our own all-volunteer station here in Sausalito, and that its diverse programming is a great asset to the community.
