The Face of God, episode two with Deborah Byrd

Deborah is a science communicator and educator who believes in science as a force for good in the world and a vital tool for the 21st century.

In this episode, I also want to give a quick report on this year’s nocturnal owl survey, which we did on the evening of April 4. We didn’t hear any owls this year, but we did see some pretty cool creatures, so stay tuned for that!
