Bob Duchesne’s Wild Maine: Who Gives a Hoot? [AUDIO]

Fuse

This week, we’re going to meet a few wise, old birds from the Eastern Maine Sportsmen’s Show. Plus, we’ll touch base with another old bird, storyteller and former game warden John Ford.

Part 1: The owls always attract a crowd at the Eastern Maine Sportsmen’s Show. Grayson Richmond of Birdsacre in Ellsworth introduces us to a Saw-whet owl. They’re cute, but not if you’re a mouse.
