It should surprise no experienced hunter or birder that wild turkeys have incredible eyesight.

Last week a caller to my radio show asked that I explain the word “mast.” “I’ve often heard you use the term, but I’m not sure exactly what it means,” she said. It’s a great question, especially at this time of year.

A frequent question among readers in the aftermath of last winter’s deep freeze was, “How do birds survive overnight low temperatures that plunge below zero degrees Fahrenheit?”

Feeding backyard birds can be as simple or as complicated as you choose to make it.

With the 100th anniversary of the extinction of the passenger pigeon fresh on our minds, I’m pleased to report an easy and inexpensive way that everyone can help prevent future extinctions of wildlife by simply mailing a letter.

While well-intentioned, feeding deer corn is still not advisable.

The concept of conservation, using resources sustainably over time, is relatively new.

Some promising sings for monarchs.

Last winter many readers wrote to ask how wildlife could survive the frigid polar vortices.

Passenger pigeons are an example why we should never underestimate extinction.
