Ornithologist Vern Laux joins Mindy Todd for the monthly Bird News hour, with stories, questions and our monthly quiz & bird song. Brian Morris takes us on a visit to Cape Cod Wild Care, where a great horned owl and some loons are recovering from injuries. We hear from Veterinarian Dr. Roberto Aguilar of the Cape Wildlife Center about dealing with lead poisoning in birds. Edie Ray joins us from American Oystercatcher Working Group to talk about tagging these charismatic birds.

Mindy Todd is the host and producer of The Point on WCAI which examines critical issues for Cape Cod and the Islands. She brings more than 30 years of experience in radio and television to WCAI.
