In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, this week on the Bird Show we explore the lore behind the majestic Birds of Ireland. How did the Robin get her red breast? Why should you never let a Seagull borrow your shoes? And how did the Wren outsmart an Eagle to become the King of Birds? Find the answers (and maybe even a pot of gold) on today’s special shamrock-inspired episode of Dr. Crow’s Bird Show.
