Migrating Birds

The Fall migration is in full swing, and for birds the key to survival is to conserve energy. They wait for nights with a light North wind to help them along their way.  Many species have already left our region on their long and impressive journeys across the world. On The Point, our host Mindy Todd sits down with Mark Faherty, wildlife biologist at Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, to discuss the season's highlights, along with listeners around the Cape, coast and islands. 

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.
