I first heard of Guy when l was about 13, so he must be close to 90 years old. That is inspiration enough. San Diego County is 4000 square miles, the size of the state of Connecticut or the nation of Jamaica. When l was there in 2007(SD co.)the county had a bird species record similar to Oregon, 500 and change. Oregon has a surface area 24.5 times bigger than San Diego County if one ignores the offshore waters.
