Trash -- especially plastic trash -- can have big consequences for birds: filling up their stomachs, entangling their wings and otherwise being Bad News. "Plirding" (or picking up litter while birding) is an easy thing to incorporate into your regular birding to help make a difference. Join Freya McGregor, Outreach Coordinator for the radio show and podcast Ray Brown's Talkin' Birds, for a quick rundown of different ways you can go plirding, and why this makes a difference to the birds we love. Learn more about plirding and get ideas of ways to do it here.
