Idaho Bird Watcher Share Story Of Rare 'Ovenbird' Sighting In Her Backyard

via Heidi Ware Carlisle
The rare ovenbird sits Heidi Ware Carlisle's rosemary plant.

The Idaho bird watching community is close. That’s why last year, when a rare bird made a stop at one bird enthusiast’s house, dozens of their birding friends stopped by to check it out.

Heidi Ware Carlisle is the Education Director at the Intermountain Observatory at Boise State University. She joins Idaho Matters to talk a little more about that rare bird, and the birding community here in the state.
