This week the hotel took down the "Radisson" signs and hung a plastic banner calling it the "Stockton Grand Hotel". They also answer the phone that way now. Our event will go on as planned...

That is, if you haven't already registered for one of the most highly regarded (and just plain fun!) birding events in the country. Let me be a "name-dropper"- Kevin Karlson, John Hendrickson, Ed Harper, Kimball Garrett, Joe Morlan, Simone Whitecloud, Keith Hansen. They have so much to show and teach us...

  • I want to thank all who called the RBA to provide current updates on the Snowy Owl- you helped me see my #1 most wanted lifer. Thanks also to Liz West who called me to report the new location and give me directions, and to others who mentioned they had my phone number and were going to call if I didn't show up before they left. Thanks to the Birding Gods for sending the Snowy to us...
