February is National Bird Feeding Month. It’s said to be one of the most difficult times of the year for birds in the United States to survive in the wild. Sunday Baroque celebrates with baroque music about birds and imitating birdsongs. Highlights include George Frideric Handel’s “Cuckoo and Nightingale” Concerto. It’s this weekend on Sunday Baroque, starting at 7 a.m. on 91.1, 107.5 and wshu.org, and at 10 a.m. on 89.9.

Suzanne Bona is the host and executive producer of Sunday Baroque, a nationally syndicated weekly radio show of Baroque and early music which she originated on WSHU in 1987.
