My condolences Barbara. Bill was such a kind and passionate man who, as you said, loved birds so deeply. My first and only birding trip was in 1990 to Costa Rica with you and Bill. Barbara Volkle was my roommate! (All my other trips have been bird photography trips since then ). Most memorable was when we got to visit and meet Alexander Skutch at his home -author of the guidebook to the Birds of Costa Rica. Bill was so enthusiastic about every bird we saw and as always, wanted to make sure everyone got to see each one and would ask us what our favorite sightings were at the end of the trip. Mine of course was the bird I came to see - the Resplendent Quetzal! May the birds follow Bill's spirit everywhere!
