Counting on Birds airs on Monday, December 9th at 9 pm

More than a century ago, orinthologist  Frank Chapman redirected a Christmas-time tradition of revelers shooting birds to a new Yuletide recreation: counting birds. 

From chickadees in New England to Ecuador's musical manakins, to the forests of Cuba, Counting on Birds visits the habitats of these bird species and introduces the people dedicated to the National Audobon Society's Christmas Bird Count. 

Counting on Birds airs on Monday, December 9th at 9:00 p.m.  and on Sunday, December 15th at 10:00 a.m. on channel 3 and on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. on channel 3-1.
