August is flying by and so are many avian species. Recent stormy weather brought some unusual birds to the Cape and islands. Mark Faherty, wildlife biologist at Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, joins host Mindy Todd to update us on the latest bird news, along with listeners from throughout our region calling in or emailing questions and stories about birds, and other creatures too... Mark tells us about the upcoming Mass Audubon Field School course on pollinators and other insects where participants learn about natural history, biology, conservation issues, and how to spread awareness of the vital role pollinators play in our environment.

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.
