PhD student Flavia Montano has had a pretty exciting summer so far.  Besides conducting field work in the Bolivian Andes, Flavia learned that she has received two field research grants to support her dissertation research.  One is from the Lewis and Clark Fund for Exploration and Field Research from the American Philosophical Society.  Her second award is an AOU Research Award from the American Ornithologists’ Union.  Way to go Flavia!!
