Birds at Summer's End

On The Point, Mark Faherty, ornithologist and science coordinator at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, and host Mindy Todd bring us the monthly bird news. Cooler weather is effecting all local creatures, and migration is well underway for many species. We hear about the great numbers of shearwaters that can now be seen taking advantage of the abundant bait in our waters, and reports form listeners about who's visiting their feeders.

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.
