VPR and Catamount Arts present Jane Lindholm and friends in a live version of the podcast But Why featuring live birds! Join us Monday, May 13 at 6:00 p.m. at the Alexander Twilight Theatre at Northern Vermont University — Lyndon for a fun family show.

But Why Live! answers the questions: How do owls spin their heads around? How do owls see at night? Why do birds sing at dawn and dusk? And more! But Why podcast host and co-creator, Jane Lindholm,  is joined on stage by "Bird Diva" Bridget Butler and live owls from the Southern Vermont Natural History Museum.
