Vern Laux explains why he's so excited about a pending Nor'easter; and we hear about new research that links chickens to Tyrannosaurus Rex!
Master birder Vern Laux joins us live from a Cape Cod thicket, and Mass Audubon's John Galluzzo reports on his Yellow Rail finding...and photos!
Vern Laux shares observations about shorebirds, and John Galluzzo of Mass Audubon reports from the footsteps of Thoreau.
