Birds of Midsummer

Here's the July bird report on The Point, with wildfife biologist Mark Faherty of Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary and host Mindy Todd. We hear about which species have begun to migrate already (many shore birds) and about the behavior of various flocks: which terns will attack you and peck you on the head, who wins in fights over the available food. We get tips for spotting birds in various habitats, from the water to the woods. 

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.
