In Search Of Internet Birding Shows

I recently discovered the wonders of connecting my laptop to my tv with am HDMI cable. Any video or show that I find on the Internet can be played back on my big screen flatscreen television instead of  having to watching it on a 17" laptop screen. I've had fun finding old movies and forgotten 70's television shows like Circle Of  Fear.

 The other day I started googling to see if I could find any birding shows. Below are some links to some interesting programs I've found: 

Below are links to 3 short video clips by Jason Kessler from 2012. I had seen the first one but never seen the other two. They creatively blend truth and humor to make for very entertaining videos.

1) Sh*t Birders Say
2) Sh*t Non-Birders Say
3) Sh*t Birders Say To Each Other

4) Cornell has a program called Inside Birding hosted by Chris Wood and Jessie Barry. They show great video close-ups of birds while the hosts share useful tips about birding.  
5) Nikon has Birding Adventures TV. I'm looking forward to checking out some these episodes.
6) Here's one called Twitchers .

Please let me know about any other interesting Internet birding videos or programs that you are aware of.

I have the cable and instructions on my desk.. Now I must overcome procrastination and trepidation. This post is an inspiration!

It should be just a matter of plugging the cable into the connection on the laptop with the same type of connection in the tv at the other end-then using the source select button on the tv remote until you see you see your computer screen on the tv screen.

Some interesting links Larry. The "Twitchers" is I think part of a longer BBC show from a few years ago. Forgive me but I think that twitching and birding are two completely different activities.

I agree with that. I'm somewhere between a bird-watcher and a birder and don't often "twitch" but I thought I would toss it in there for variety.
