Welcome to the Chat Happens interviews page! Here you will find interviews conducted from us at Chat Happens with a wide range of people within the birding community. Birders. Scientists. Authors. Artists. You!

The goal with these interviews is to give broader insight into the community for which we all belong. As we gain knowledge about ourselves we also gain knowledge for our hobby, passion, and the birds themselves. If nothing else, these interviews will prove entertaining and if we’re lucky, inspiring.

If you’re interested in conducting an interview for Chat Happens please contact Chad at chad AT chat-happens dot com.
