Bill Young, author of the book The Fascination of Birds: From the Albatross to the Yellowthroat, will provide an overview of Panama’s flora and fauna. Though barely the size of South Carolina, Panama harbors more bird species than all of North America as well as a rich array of mammals, reptiles, amphibians, insects, plants, and other life forms.

In addition to his book on birds, Bill has worked with Ashley Bradford, a local naturalist, to create the MPNature website, which features natural history information and resources for visitors to Monticello Park in Alexandria. His YouTube channel has had more than a quarter of a million views of his natural history videos.
