Bird News in January

It's the monthly Bird News program on The Point: wildlife biologist Mark Faherty brings us the latest of the season's birding highlights (and reports on other creatures too). More people are birding during the pandemic, leading to more interesting bird sightings! An unusual flight of about sixty puffins was recently seen near First Encounter Beach in Eastham. It's been a good winter so far for finches and their kin. Mark gives us tips for the bird feeder, and notes the presence of remaining migrants that seemed to have stayed on to overwinter here, including several orioles. Mindy Todd hosts.
