Frank and his team members, the Raven Luna-ticks, hold the state record  for most birds seen in a day, which is 192 species, and are aiming to  reach 200.

This program chronicles a journey from the Cape Peninsula up to 
              Kruger National Park in South Africa with vivid photos of birds, 
              animals and stunning landscapes, and describes the travel in this 
              varied and sometimes distinctly un-African country. The Cape 
              Peninsula    is home to penguins, ostriches, and several types of 
              antelope. Kruger National Park is one of the largest game reserves 
              in Africa and is home to lions, leopards, elephants, and giraffes 
              and more than 500 species of birds. Gina Nichol is the founder of 
              Sunrise Birding, a company devoted to natural history programs and 
              tours. Gina has been a naturalist and birder for more than 
              twenty-five years.Gina Nichol is the founder of Sunrise Birding, a
