Looking for Something? Try Listening...to the Birds

Jan 8, 2018

In a busy world, everyone's looking for a place for peace.  Ask Skyler Kardell and he'll show you somewhere right in front of your nose.  All you need to do is...listen.  Skyler is a competitive birder on Nantucket who tries to see as many species as he can every year.  He uses his eyes, his ears, and his smartphone to spot all kinds of migrants in the trees.  Despite the birding community on Nantucket being small, he does what he can to draw people into the watch.
