American Birding Association Birding Magazine Article Dec 2015

In the December 2015 American Birding Association magazine "Birding" I was mentioned in an article on page 8 called "ABA's Young Birders: The Future is now" as I entered the ABA Young Birder of the Year competition 2015.

I was also mentioned in the birding milestones section on page 10 about be seeing my 4000th bird in the world and with a photo of my 4000th bird on the contents page (page 5)

Red-throated Tit, my 4000th bird in the world.

Also on the Audubon Magazine website, there is an article about me, which I am very proud of:
