Daily Delight: BirdNote
True or false: If you touch a bird's eggs, it will abandon its nest.

We found out the answer to this and other bird tales on the radio show, BirdNote. These two-minute spots that air weekdays are dedicated to telling brief but interesting stories about the lives of birds.

They're broadcast on more than 200 public ratio stations. You can also listen to—or read—each segment online. Or subscribe to the free BirdNote podcasts. Each story includes an array of nature sounds, including birdcalls.

Episodes are timed to coincide with the season when you would see the featured birds (or at least hear them). Check out this recent episode to hear the songs of the Song Sparrow (shown above), Chipping Sparrow and White-throated Sparrow.

Those are some sweet tweets!
