Like so many others, I am indebted to Bill Drummond for growing my lists from Arizona to Alaska and beyond. Bill was not only a consummate birder but a dedicated and intense leader in the field. His organizational skills were legion, and he worked tirelessly to make sure that everyone saw or heard the target species. I valued his even-handed dealing with trip participants and his efforts at making distant trips affordable and accessible. His no-nonsense military style betrayed a caring and reliable competence that was so widely respected. When he called out, "Get ready!", we did--and I, for one, hope to remember his admonition not just for birding but for all of life.
