Canada geese and other birds are flying south for the winter.

The changing colors of leaves are not the only exciting things to look out for in the fall. Thousands of birds are lighting up the skies, flying south for the winter.

So Bird Diva Bridget Butler joins us to, among other things, explain where the snow geese are, the winter finch forecast and what to get a bird nerd for the holidays. And Wildlife Biologist John Buck updates us on how the state's breeding pairs or loons, eagles and peregrine falcons are faring. 

Also on the program, we celebrate the birthday of Vermont philosopher John Dewey by hearing from one of his biggest fans, Frank Gonzales.

Broadcast live on Tues., Oct. 20, 2015 at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
