Public talk at World Birding Center next week!

Next Saturday, 19 January 2013, at 10 am, I will be giving a talk for the general public at the South Padre Island World Birding Center. The title of the talk is:

Things You Find on the Beach:
A new species for South Padre Island

I’m fairly excited, because it’s always fun to talk about finding a species that has never been seen in a place before. I will also talk a tiny little bit about my #SciFund expedition back in November. Here’s a teaser of the species that never been recorded on the island before:
