Yes, Glenn just sent me a PM informing me that I must have insulted all you great experts! When I responded to Glenn, I had NOT seen any other response. I was simply asking for folks like you, Bill, Dan, Will, Karen etc to chime in. Folks who have actually studied the issue both academically and through their years of field work.

Glenn, WIll and Dan have been very kind and helpful to me and my education. I love all things natural, beautiful and all science. I have great curiosity and interests which makes it difficult to spend enough time on any one subject so I have to rely upon yours and their expertise. I appreciate all the help I can get!

I hope this clears up any miscommunication and hurt feelings.

None of my business...but...
I’m guessing Bill must have replied to Glen right before your comment to Glen about experts...
Bill is an expert but like all of us as we get older...we get a little cranky some days. And I suspect he took the comment to be directed to him.
He really is a good guy...and an excellent birder.
I hope you can shoot him a note off list and let him know you weren’t directing the comment to him.

WHOA??? I have no idea what this about. I think Mr. Shepard may have me confused with some one else. I do not know him. I have never written to or about him. I respectfully ask that he retract this slanderous statement and refrain from referring to my name in the future.

Joe Tucker (whoever that may be) tells everyone on this list that I am not an expert (I wonder how he knows that) and then hides behind a screen that prevents delivery of my reply to him. Maybe he didn't intend to slight me. But, if that's the case, he should be careful about the implications of what he writes.
