Ryan Andrews, age 15 (Palomar Audubon member) has won a youth scholarship to the annual Western Field Ornithologist’s Conference to be held this summer in Billings, Montana. Ryan was selected for Palomar Audubon’s scholarship last year.
In the announcement, Ryan was quoted, “Who knew that when I was six and set up a bird feeder…it would launch me into a lifelong interest in birds…..Birds are beautiful and vocal. They have interesting habits, such as anting or brood parasitism. There’s an incredible variety and you never know what you might see when you go birding.… I hope to have a career in biology or ornithology, through which I can do field work and research.…”
