Bird News for November 2020

On The Point, we get updates on bird action (and other creactures) from Wildlife Biologist Mark Faherty of Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. People flocked to Race Point in Provincetown this week when word got around that a birder had spotted a rare ancient murrelet. Many drove hours to try for a glimpse of this rare alcid, seldom seen in these parts: it's the 4th state record. Meanwhile on the home feeders, bird visitors go from busy to sparse: Mark offers thoughts about the question he's asked frequently: "Where are my birds?" Mindy Todd hosts.

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.
