Coming to the Small Screen
NestWatch Project Leader Robyn Bailey and Cornell University Museum of Vertebrates bird curator Vanya Rohwer spent time in September with a TV crew to shoot a segment about bird nests for a program called “Awesome Planet” hosted by Philipe Cousteau, Jr. Despite the rain, Robyn showed off local nests to the film crew, while back in the museum, Vanya explored interesting nest specimens from around the world.
The episode, focused on animal architecture, will also showcase engineering feats of bees and beavers. Look for it to air on your local Fox station on December 19 (check local listings for times). You can also watch it on Hulu beginning December 20.
