From Point A to Point B; Basics of Bird Migration

By Steve Betchkal

Bird migration is one of the wonders of the natural world.  How birds move across Earth is a magnificently-evolved and precisely-tuned story of one of life’s most fascinating – and mysterious – systems. Ornithologist Steve Betchkal discusses the hows, whys, whens, and wheres of migration.

Steve Betchkal (Eau Claire) has hiked/camped/backpacked/traveled 49 U.S. states, 45 National Forests, 78 National Wildlife Refuges, 71 National Parks, & 4 Canadian provinces in pursuit of wild birds. In 2017 he worked in the Galápagos for Lindblad-National Geographic.

Steve is the former president of Gaylord Nelson Audubon, founder of MartinMart and Welcome Back Bird Day, the producer of WSO’s Bird TV, and currently the content editor for Wisconsin’s Favorite Bird Haunts. In his 30 years as a professional journalist, he produced 11,000 TV stories, and is the only journalist in Chippewa Valley history to win five Emmys and an Edward R. Murrow Award.

He is the author of eight books, including All of This & Robins TooMake Birds Not War, Wisconsin Birding Trails, Cat Tales, Walk the Walk, Camp the Camp, Bird the Bird, & his latest, 101 Apologus Nights.
