Summer Encore: Backyard Butterflies Field Guide | Erin Gettler

Imagine taking an interest in all things lepidoptera to a whole new level—from curious naturalist to field guide author. That’s what my guest for this episode, Erin Gettler, did in 2017 with her book Bird Watcher’s Digest Butterflies Backyard Guide. In this episode from season 2, Erin and I chat about the work involved in creating a field guide from the research involved to the fascinating tidbits of information she learned while writing the book. There’s a lot packed into the episode—do check out the book if you’d like to delve more into the world of butterflies in your own backyard!

Music: “New Day” by Lee Rosevere
