Latest from the Field with Athena

Athena dropped down to Florida where she added the reclusive Mangrove Cuckoo to her big year list, plus saw other Florida specialties including Purple Gallinule, Gray Kingbird, & Magnificent Frigatebirds to name a few!

This brings the annual list of 442 species for the year. In 2013 “Travis” has tallied 354 at this same time of year.
