Roger Higson left a cryptic message on the BirdBox tonight that left me
discombobulated, about his being refused access to someone's yard near
Mayflower Park in Blythe, that implied that he was being punished for the
sins of some other birder. Roger went on to say that he would try to dig
up some facts.
Well, I wish that Roger had done some digging, first, and then reported
something more solid, like "a tall thin birder driving a red Mercedes SUV
trespassed without permission..." because it would be all too easy to
assume that since I'm the last birder to report from there on both the
Birdbox and CalBirds (and I'm short, fat, and drive a green Jeep),
obviously I'm the source of Roger's problems out there.
Well, I'm not, nor is the gentleman from San Francisco in the green Isuzu
Trooper (sorry, I forget your name!). We both stayed in the middle of the
street, and had several friendly conversations with the local residents. I
hope that when Roger finds out what happened, he shares what he knows with
the rest of us in detail.
