Deborah Rivel of Wildtones was interviewed by talk show host Scott Shalaway of WPTT Radio, Pittsburgh on his show "Birds and Nature". You can listen to the interview here on Talk Shoe - it's Episode 75. Deborah's interview starts at the top of the second hour.
Listeners heard how Scott met Deborah on a birding trip to Panama Canopy Towers in 2005 where they spoke about the plans for Wildtones.com. Once Wildtones went live, it was time to talk again! Scott's past shows have included author Scott Weidensaul and a live broadcast from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Scott Shalaway is a well-known naturalist, has authored numerous books on birds and nature, and is the host of several popular weekly radio programs in Pittsburgh, PA and Wheeling,WV.

House FinchHouse Finch
For me, in the Eastern US, it isn't really Spring until I hear the beautiful song of the House Finch. With the males' bright red heads and strong melodious voices, these small birds make an impression during nesting season. But it wasn't always this way across much of the US, as they are natives of the Southwest and have an unusual history. In the 1940's they were popular birds for pets and illegally sold in the Eastern US as "Hollywood Finches". To avoid being prosecuted, pet shops released their birds into the wild, and they have done very well for themselves - now occupying most of the Eastern US. They may have done a little too well as they are replacing Purple Finches in some areas, but due to an eye disease, their numbers have been halved in the East in the past 10 years. House Finches do well around humans and it appears humans appreciate these energetic birds. Check out the House Finch's call and description and make this great sound your Spring ringtone!
