OUT-005 Christmas Bird Count at Restoration Point

From BCB... http://bestofbcb.org/out-005-christmas-bird-count-restoration-point/ In this episode of “Bainbridge Outdoors,” BCB host Annie Osburn joins Bainbridge Island’s premier birders George Gerdts, Brad Waggoner and Jamie Acker at Restoration Point for the 2014 Christmas Bird Count. Now in its 115th year, the first Christmas Bird Count (CBC) was taken on Christmas Day, 1900, by ornithologist Frank Chapman. It was Chapman, an officer in the nascent Audubon Society, who proposed conducting a census of birds seen rather than a count of birds hunted and killed during the Christmas season. Today, the CBC is the longest-running citizen science survey in the world. Administered by the National Audubon Society, the count provides critical data on population trends around the world. While the first CBC included 25 counts and tallied approximately 90 species, current CBCs amass data from more than 2,300 counts. On this cold, blustery morning of December 27, 2014, Osburn and BCB audio t...

OUT-004 Outdoors on tour at West Sound Wildlife Shelter

If you have ever wondered what happens at the West Sound Wildlife Shelter, BCB host Annie Osburn takes you inside in this episode of “Bainbridge Outdoors” for a look at Western Puget Sound’s only wildlife hospital and education center. Joining Osburn are executive director Lisa Horn, operations manager and wildlife rehabilitation specialist Lynne Weber, and hospital manager Brandy Stier, on location inside the hospital and on the grounds. The main focus of the West Sound Wildlife Shelter (WSWS) is to rescue and rehabilitate wild animals located throughout Washington State who have either been injured, orphaned or have fallen sick. As Horn notes, “Our goal is to bring them into our veterinary hospital and give them the best possible medical care we can, so we can get them back out in the wild for a second chance on life. Our second goal is to educate the public and provide outreach programs. Our education programs reach about 15,000 adults and children each year.” Six staff and ...

OUT-003 Bainbridge Birder George Gerdts on Fall Migration Patterns

From BCB... In this episode of “Bainbridge Outdoors,” BCB host Annie Osburn joins Bainbridge Island birder George Gerdts at Fort Ward Park to talk about fall bird migration on the island. A passionate birder since childhood, Gerdts is a virtual storehouse of knowledge when it comes to our local birds, their habitat, behaviors, songs, calls, and more. On this misty fall morning, Gerdts and Osburn meet at the southern end of Fort Ward Park, near the fish pens, to take a closer look at the migrating waterfowl that come to winter on this stretch of saltwater shoreline. Many of the birds who've been absent all summer are now returning from their Arctic breeding grounds. Look for Surf Scoters, White-winged Scoters and the occasional Black Scoter; Double-crested Cormorants, California Gulls, ducks, geese, and more. Waterfowl migration is not just one single event, but rather a long and complex movement that starts around July 1st and continues as late as mid-November, and Bainbridge is t...

OUT-002 Landscape artist describes his labyrinth in contemplative park

With BCB host Kayla Black, we meet Jeffrey Bales -- a landscape artist who designed a stone-surface labyrinth for a small contemplative Bainbridge park that is unique for having a Tibetan prayer wheel. In this episode of Bainbridge Outdoors, we hear about a Bainbridge Island outdoor destination that is cherished by many -- especially walkers and cyclists who are careful not to spoil the solitude. The quiet spot is on the wooded north slope above and overlooking Blakely Harbor, in southern Bainbridge Island. Labyrinths have a very ancient history with some of the earliest examples being labyrinth paintings dating back 3000 years. The ancient Greeks created many labyrinths, and Jeffrey visited the labyrinth on the island of Crete at Knossos. One of the best known labyrinths in the world is the 800-year-old eleven circuit labyrinth at Chartre Cathedral in France. Jeffrey made a point of studying the extensive history, the mythos and the structure, and then applied that knowledge to thi...

OUT-001 The Sound of Walking the Grand Forest Trail to Hilltop

In this debut episode of “Bainbridge Outdoors,” BCB host Annie Osburn walks with Dan Hamlin, park services superintendent of the Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Recreation District, through the heart of the Grand Forest. They begin their adventure at the Miller Road trailhead in the Grand Forest West. Together, they wind their way along the main loop trail to waypoint 17, where they turn left and head toward east side creek and the Grand Forest bridge, which was refurbished in 2012. Listen to the sounds of deep forest and the soft crunch under foot. They then cross the bridge, merge onto the Ron Williamson Trillium Trail and head up to the open meadow at Hilltop, which connects to the Hilltop Trail and the Grand Forest East. Covering more than 200 acres, the Grand Forest is comprised of the Grand Forest North, East and West, with the east and west sides now joined at the Hilltop meadow—creating the first east-to-west trail connection across the island. And all of it is on public l...
