'Bird Whisperer' of Smithtown shares knowledge

An 11-year-old Smithtown girl is spreading her knowledge of birds in the community and on the Web.



Victoria Bonavita, or the "Bird Whisperer," has been interested in birds since her earliest days.



She likes to share her knowledge at the Smithtown Senior Department and through her web series, "Victoria's Amazing Pets."



The seventh-grader loves her pet chickens, but her runner duck from Indonesia is her favorite.



"I have always had a love for them. I just love them because they're different," Bonavita told News 12.
