Awwww. I shall never forget when he met a group of us Fort Smith people very early one morning, and helped us get a very special bird at Red Slough. What a thrill that moment was when all of a sudden, just as it was getting light, a bird screamed out, “KISKADEE” from the tree above us.
What a nice, considerate man he was. Thank you for letting us know, David.
