This week on The Naturalist Bernie hosts frequent collaborator Carol Butler in support of her new book, “How Fast Can a Falcon Dive?”. Bernie and Carol discuss raptors: birds built to be killing machines, prowling from the skies with laser accuracy. Tune in to hear why nubs on shoulder bones mean birds of prey and ferocious dinosaurs are close relatives, and how these intelligent hunters stalk and kill their prey with incredible accuracy. This episode was sponsored by Fairway Market.
