Bon voyage, Ol' Coot. You were an impressive birder. You'll be missed.

Jeff, Great hooking up with you at Ensley Bottoms last weekend. I've posted a few photos to my blog from the trip I'll be down again and will contact you again. Hope fully the wind won't be as bad. Hoping for a great birding season.

Mr. Wilson,

Thanks so much for taking time to teach me about shorebirds at Ensley bottoms yesterday. This morning before church, I went by the Coldwater Refuge and tried to apply some of what you taught me. I think I was able to ID a solitary sandpier based on the swallow like appearance in flight. The new tower is wonderful, and I saw lots of dowitchers and some very colorful green winged teal. I saw that in your most recent post that you located over 30 Upland Sandpipers in the Old 61 area yesterday afternoon. Wished I had had more time stick with you, that would have been impressive. Still, I am very grateful to have seen the small group of Uplands that morning thanks to the location info in your prior post.

Hope you had a great Easter,
Ken Wills

Mr. Wilson,
I enjoyed looking at your photos. I am interested in visiting one of your birding spots, Ensley Bottoms. Can you give me so info on how to get there? Thanks

To set the record straight, I have not seen the Western Kingbird at the old Army Depot, only the Eastern Kingbird.

An article in the Commercial Appeal on 3/26/10 on the Loggerhead Shrike led me to believe they may no longer be common in this area. I must have misunderstood because I've been watching a pair near my home lately; and, today at lunchtime, I saw one at the Old Army Depot site on Airways where I work. My views have been up close & personal - not flyby GIS....

Nice to meet you at Sardis last week. Really enjoy the picture galleries.

Enjoyed your galleries. Great resource for identifying birds. Im a birder in Georgia but moved here form Tennessee so I can use your site to help me ID some photos Ive taken.

Thank you for all the wonderful information you post on this site. These are things that make a relatively new birder even more interested in birding!

Hi Jeff, I love your photos and they have reminded me of the "pink" cardinal that I had in my backyard in Il. I wish I had taken pictures of him. I now live in South Carolina and think S. Carolina needs a "free list" and a photographer like you. Thanks for the great pictures and stories and I hope we can meet sometime while birding. I think(from your pictures) that you were in Texas the same time I was last year!!! It was great seeing pictures of the birds I had seen while there. Best, Linda

Hey Jeff! Greetings from the Sonoran desert of Tucson, great to see you're enjoying one of our cool birds out there in TN! What a super record and well done to my good mate Morris for discovering the bird. Nice photos Jeff, thanks for sharing!

Hi Jeff,
Nice galleries. I found your photos doing a search for Ferruginous Hawks as I have a gallery of them in a nest.

Hey Coot. Ruth and I viewed some pictures on your webside and we really enjoyed it. The commentary is almost as enjoyable as the pictures themselves!

Coot, we've never met, but Kenny talks about you alot. Hope to meet you at Moma's sometime. Ruth

I'll have a bacon biscuit and a medium coke waiting on you.

See you soon.

You just don't know how wide the connections really are. I was sitting in a blind in China with 25 other birders and in the conversations going on about the Spoon-bill Sandpiper that I had gone in particularlly to see, I found a guy from India and another from Sweden that I had communicated with about shorebirds on the net.

It truely is a small world. I'll keep adding albino, albinistic and lecistic shots. I had a break in some months ago and they trashed 4000 slides and stole most of my back up tapes of digital shots so it will take some time to get some of them back up.

Jeff, thanks for creating these pages and sharing the images. I find this a fascinating and even startling change in the way folks communicate, and especially ardent birders sharing exciting moments in the field. It sures widens my own world.
