Live from Sweet Auburn, we meet a yellow bird with a black hat.
Golden Eagles...by the hundreds—and a Bay State town says no to plastic bags and cups.
We welcome Mass Audubon's John Galluzzo, who recently completed a year of nature walks in all 351 Massachusetts cities and towns. Also, we present a "Let's Ask Mike" segment that we call "Birds as Polar Bears," and a listener from the great state of Ohio solves the mystery of the Specklebelly.
We wax nostalgic about Snow Buntings on Cape Cod; we present a "royal" Mystery Bird; and Mike O'Connor weighs in on feeding Vaccinium oxycoccos to your backyard birds.
We hear about how Oreoscoptes montanus is causing a big stir in Massachusetts. And one of North America's fastest flyers stumps some callers in our Mystery Bird contest.
We learn about a Massachusetts birder who was looking for peeps but was arrested as a "Peeping Tom!" We'll also get a distant preview of the "Spring of the Year" through our Featured Feathered Friend.
We hear about a southwestern hummer that's causing a stir in Massachusetts; we learn about a bird that rubs its feathers with mothballs; and we try to answer a question about a dove that just refuses to go home.
We answer a question about bald Cardinals, we hear an amazing story about a winged shoplifter, and our Mystery Bird arrives in Massachusetts after a 150-year absence!
We meet Barbara Volkle, moderator of the highly-successful MassBird.org email list; Mike O'Connor offers some feline-fighting advice to a listener from Wales; and our Mystery Bird proves to be a stumper.
