Christian Ward was featured speaking with Jason Ward in Jason’s premiere epsisode of “Birds of North America.” Christian is the same man that was viciously and falsely accused of harassment by a deranged white woman in Central Park.
My daughter sent this video awhile ago when she was living in NYC and I loved it, so fun and really well done. I forgot to post then and I imagine its has received many more views knowing that Christian appears in it.
Love this quote from Jason Ward when he spots a beautiful bird – “keep the party inside!”
In this premiere episode, Bronx native and bird-lover Jason Ward visits Central Park – “the best place in North America to see migrating birds” – where he joins thousands of warblers and compares the unique sound of a rose-breasted grosbeak to the squeak of rubber soles on a basketball court.
Jason Ward has been an avid birdwatcher since he was a kid growing up in the Bronx, where he spotted a peregrine falcon eating a pigeon on a ledge outside his bedroom window. In the first season of Topic’s new series, the avian advocate and father of two travels around the Northeast, from Cape May, New Jersey, to Maine, delighting audiences with his contagious curiosity about the natural world—and the creatures within it. Those creatures include those of the human variety, too, with guests such as comedian Wyatt Cenac, Dr. Drew Lanham of Clemson University, “The Birdist” Nicholas Lund, the American Museum of Natural History’s Paul Sweet, and the Feminist Bird Club. (Plus Jason’s younger brother Jeffrey, a fellow birder and formidable opponent in the brothers’ annual bird count competition.) Get your binoculars ready.
