According to the Chinese zodiac calendar, this is the year of the dog. But National Geographic says otherwise, naming 2018 as 'year of the bird' in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918.

Today, we speak with a photographer who captured moments of bird migration across the world and with local bird watchers right here in Kansas City.

But first: find out how drag queen story time events are teaching kids about the importance of literature and acceptance.

Guests:

Drag Queen Storytime events take place on the first Sunday of each month. For more information, visit ThePearlKC.com.
