Kenn Kaufman's passion for birds began when he was six. At sixteen, he dropped out of school to embark on an eighty thousand-mile voyage in pursuit of birds. In this hour, it's our annual bird show. We'll talk with bird guide author Kenn Kaufman, and answer your birding questions. Plus, this year's Audubon Christmas Bird count, and what NASA engineers are learning from flying geese.
