Like humans, animals and birds cope with winter in a variety of ways. Some leave, migrating to warmer climates. Some hunker down for lots of sleep by hibernating. And some, like moose and ravens, are active all winter long. Join this week’s host, Paul Twardock, as he’ll be talking with scientists and writers to help us better understand how nature adapts and adjusts to winter’s challenges.
