Horses Go For The Gold
Of the 26 sports in the 2012 Summer Olympics, only one includes the participation of non-humans, namely horses. Mary Pilon covers the Olympic equestrian events for The New York Times, and she shares her observations with us. Sam Litzinger also speaks with psychologist and cetacean expert Dr. Diana Reiss about her innovative research projects focusing on dolphins. Then, BirdNote features a lighthearted examination of the ornithological connections to baseball.
