Colorado is a great place to see — and hear — birds: Some 500 species have been observed here, more than in all but a handful of other states.

Here, Coloradan Editor Eric Gershon speaks with Nathan Pieplow, a former editor of the journal Colorado Birds, who teaches writing and rhetoric at CU. Pieplow is also the author of the Peterson’s Field Guide to Bird Sounds of Western North America (forthcoming in April). You can find the book’s companion website at
