A staggering number of birds winter on Cape Cod and the Islands. On Bird News, ornithologist Vern Laux tells us of the many eiders, razorbills, alcids, and other birds attracted to the cold seasonal life in this part of the world.
Winter is no fun for birds, despite the cheery note of a Carolina Wren. On this week's Bird Report, Vern Laux discusses the stresses birds face this time of year, and gives tips for helping birds survive. Consider a heated birdbath, keep the food coming - and maybe you'll be rewarded with a sighting of an Eastern Bluebird!
Birders like to keep lists of all kinds. They keep lists of birds they see in their yard, the town they live in, the state, the country, the continent, the world and more. Many keep a year list so the start of each New Year is time again to start a whole bunch of new lists.
Vern Laux has more, including further updates on this year's Christmas Bird Count, in this week's Bird News.
