The return of red-winged blackbirds herald the arrival of spring in Vermont.

You might be hearing songs lately that herald the changing of the season, from red-winged blackbirds to sparrows and woodcocks. On Vermont Edition's annual spring bird show, we'll talk bird behavior, the oddities of bird courtship and how lighting up your house at night may impact the migration of some species.

Joining us for the show is the one and only bird diva Bridget Butler.

Link to the Birder Broker project that Bridget described on the show.

Broadcast live on Thursday, April 4, 2019 at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
