The Champions on the Flyway
Jill Rennicke, Alumni Coordinator

Since the age of five, Marky Mutchler (CS12) has been enthralled with the flights of birds. Soon, that love will see her take flight herself as she heads to Israel for the "Champions of the Flyway" bird race, a BirdLife International Migratory Birds & Flyways Programme initiative and part of the Eilat Bird Festival sponsored by the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel.

Marky is attending LSU where she is involved with research on avian genetics. A talented bird artist whose work has been featured in Birding magazine and the 2015 ABA Young Birder of the Year, she has given the keynote address at the Ohio Young Birders Conference and at a gathering of the Audubon Society of Missouri.
