Be sure to tune in to Morning Edition at 7:30 AM and All Things Considered at 5:30 PM each day this week to catch a special BirdNote series about the birds and birders right here in the Big Bend. In a new four part series, Alex Chadwick, featured on Tuesday's Talk at at Ten, travels to Big Bend National Park to bring us the sounds and stories of some of the 450 species of birds that can be seen at the National Park, including roadrunners, hummingbirds, cowbirds, and the rare Baird's Sparrow.

More images and fun facts about the birds that call the Big Bend home can be found at
