Subject: A bit of bird humor
Back in March, I was attending a Wildlife Society conference over in Portland with some of our other wildlife bios. A part of the conference was a live auction fund raiser with lots of wildlife related prints, outdoor gear and such. One of the "younger" bios had looked over the auction items and was telling me about some of the items since I hadn't seen it yet. He did mention seeing an old print of a ruffed grouse. Anyway, a little later I was looking over the auction items and that ruffed grouse print turned out to be a signed and numbered Peterson print. When I saw him later, I mentioned that he didn't even notice that the grouse was a Peterson print to which he replied "who is Peterson?". I guess that is when you know you are advancing into the older age range of wildlife biologists. I grew up on Peterson field guides and am a bit disappointed that Roger Tory Peterson has already faded into history with the younger folks...
