1/3, Sat. 9am:  Every cold season, tens of thousands of sandhill cranes  spend their winters in New Mexico. What are they doing here? How long have they been coming? How and why do they make their trumpeting calls?  We'll learn all about the magestic sandhill crane with UNM professor Dr. Crhsitopher Witt, Curator of Birds at the Museum of Southwestern Biology. Plus, our KUNM Kids Birthday Club, a family events calendar, and great music.  Join us!
