Bird News for July

National Audubon Society
Black Skimmer

It's a busy month for birding on the Cape and Islands.  Migrating sandpipers and plovers are streaming back from their arctic nesting grounds and turning up at local hot spots.  Baby birds are everywhere.  We also take a closer look at black skimmers; where do these strange birds breed?   We hear from Mark Faherty, science coordinator at Mass Audubon's Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary.  Listeners also chime in with their bird questions.  Mindy Todd hosts.

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 40 years of experience in radio and television to WCAI.
