Bird Love
Bird Love

Listen
AIR DATE: June 26, 2012

The movie "March of the Penguins" showed the deep love between emperor penguins in Antarctica.  Other birds that mate for life are bald eagles, puffins, California condors, and scarlet macaws.  Do all birds show a lifetime of love?  Or are others fickle with their mates?  Why do some birds get depressed when their mates die?  And what lessons can bird love teach us humans?  We talk to some bird experts about matters of the heart, plus with a UNR professor who found some surprising results about the deep love between black brant geese.
