Oscar, that is beyond horrible. You and Hendrik have added so much to the Oregon birding community. I am appalled that this happened to you, let alone at a CBC. Please know that those views are not shared by the vast majority of us. We would welcome you two on the Bend Christmas Count anytime.

Here’s to better birding and less bigotry in the coming year!

Keep your bigotry and politics at home.

After a great count and a wonderful Newport countdown we were shocked to be handed an Anti-gay (we are sinners but god still loves us blah blah) pamphlet by an "esteemed" Oregon birder as we were getting in the car to leave. Wow! What a downer way to end a great day, After 25 years together we still have to deal with idiots like him.

Hope everyone had a fun "first day of the year" birding time today.
