Bird News in the Month of May

On The Point, Host Mindy Todd and Wildlife Biologist Mark Faherty of the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, bring us the highlights from the Avian world in the glorious month of May. This is the time of year that exotic migrants turn up at feeders, on the water, and in woods and thickets all around our region. Many birds both year-round and migratory, are well into breeding season, and the insects are beginning to proliferate, too. 

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. After starting her broadcasting career as a midday DJ at WARE in Ware, Massachusetts, she quickly advanced to host of the morning drive show, which in 1981, made her one of the few women in broadcasting to anchor her own morning show. Her career has covered nearly all aspects of broadcasting. She has been a radio disc jockey, a traffic reporter, a television news anchor and reporter, a program director, talk show host, and even a ski reporter. Her television work brought her to White River Junction, VT, Portland, ME, Indianapolis, IN and Nashville, TN. Mindy also worked at radio stations in West Palm Beach, FL, Hartford, CT, Boston, MA and Lebanon, NH. She has received numerous awards, most recently her 5th National PRNDI (Public Radio News Directors Incorporated) award for best Call-in program and best Interview.
