There's a lot going on in the world of birds as we glide through August on the Cape and Islands. Throughout our region, many birds are preparing for their long migratory journeys, while others are getting another brood of chicks raised. We also discuss butterflies and their larvae, and the plants that host them. Mark Faherty, wildlife biologist at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary joins our host Mindy Todd in the Studio.

Meanwhile, we check in with Zak Mertz of the Cape Wildlife Center.

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.
