May 5, 2020 — In the changed world brought about by coronavirus, TV journalists avoid the studio and in-person interviews, and instead work from home using whatever device is at hand.

NBC CT meteorologist Kaitlyn McGrath Facetimed Executive Director Patrick Comins last week to talk about threats to Connecticut’s birds, about visiting Connecticut Audubon’s sanctuaries, and about spring migration:

The result was this story, which aired last evening.
