Girl of 13 is the youngest to see 4,000 different birds

Globe trotting Mya Rose Craig, at 13 years old, has become the youngest person in the world to see 4,000 different bird species.  She set the record when a recent trip to Kenya allowed her a rare glimpse of a red throated tit.  She has seen many different bird species, including the southern cassowary which see saw when she was only four, and it has become her favourite bird.  That was when her mother let her start counting them on her own.  Her mother said she and Chris took her to the Isles of Scilly when she was only a few months old.  When she was ten her retired parents also took her to the amazon.  She and her family have travelled all over the globe, and they are looking forward to December when she is going to Antarctica to see penguins.
