The one with the Magnolia Warbler on the front? Love that book.

Y'ALL!

Incidentally, what's a Michigander doing saying 'Y'all'?  :classic_blink:  Shouldn't that be 'Y'uns'?

I did too but I got the ever-popular "Sorry, you have no reactions left today".  Fortunately, I'm old school, so ...

Absolutely NO ONE is going to bring it to anybody else's attention that they met me.  My Darling Bride often introduces me with, "And this is my first husband."

My novice guess is....... John James Audubon!!! :classic_biggrin:

I would love to say that I met Roger Tory Peterson but.......he died 23 years ago.

He signed my name tag because I had no book.   The picture of the boy was him holding a Sea-Salt Sparrow I believe, at age 7.

He was surprisingly shy/soft spoken.  He gave the Keynote presentation at the bird fest. I went to with my mom and dad.

That must have been something! He's an absolutely amazing person.

It was really cool!  My mom and I got to talk to him for like 5 minutes alone and tell him about our bird club, etc.
