I thought that too!
Thank you for naming it for me. I am familiar with blue jay, red cardinal etc. But hadn't got a clue with this one.

I did enjoy the programme but felt it didn't need to concentrate on more familiar species to us such as the loons.

Also thought that it was running down the UK Autumn a little. It may not be as showy here but there are some amazing autumnal sights.
The picture from Perthshire near the end of the programme was top notch.

I agree that UK Autumn Watch was getting tired, the New England location and content is a refreshing change. Very tempted to sample it next year. Loved the interview with David Sibley and nice to see Chris remind us of our debt to The late great To get Tory Peterson.

Loons/Divers they may be familiar with some people I agree but there are always people that won,t be familiar with such birds so in that way it gave such people a chance to see them on Auturm Watch I for one enjoyed the whole program.

I didn't think the USA Autumn colours were at their best. We saw far better and impressive colours two weeks ago in Scotland. Breathtaking!

Enjoyed last night's programme more than the first. Good coverage on woodpeckers, red squirrels, bobcats and the piece with the brilliant artist David Sibley. Just the right amount and level of science as well
