The BBC article is here for a quick read on the discovery of Orthotomus chaktomuk from the Mekong flood plain. The Oriental Bird Club Journal, Forktail, will link you to the PDF write-up of the new species.

In my working life I am a nurse practitioner in a large urban health system where I work with adults who have acute leukemia and related hematological disorders. When someone is diagnosed with acute leukemia they are in a fight for their life. I love my work but it requires balance. I try to find balance with the activities I write about in my blogs.
