I am sorry to pass along some sad news about a member of the NJ birding community.
Mr. Bill Resotko, long time NJ birder, died unexpectedly at his home in Whiting on 5/19. A memorial service will be held at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church in Manchester Township, date to be announced. The date will be passed on to the list when it is announced.
On a personal note, I attended many field trips in Monmouth County and at Brig that Bill co-led. I lifed quite a few birds in his presence and many of those with his assistance. He once spent 15 minutes trying to get me on a Carolina Chickadee at Brig when he found out I hadn't seen one before, despite me not wanting to inconvenience him. He was generous, patient, knowledgeable, and happy to pass that knowledge on, and it was clear he loved sharing birds with people. The world needs more birders and leaders like him.
