Herman's voice (Neither of us ever imagined this in a posthumous context--Eva).


In 2002 Herman had 319 species of birds in Massachusetts, his all-time high.

Herman, Glenn & Eva got knock-out looks at
digital picture of a spruce grouse in a tree Spruce Grouse (19k) between 5:45 & 7 a.m. near Island Pond Vermont Sunday April 25, 1999. The bird(s) kept fluttering from ground to various branches 10 feet up (or so). The loud wing beats from this maneuver are what alerted us to the presence of the bird, which was the focus of our 5pm Saturday-noon Sunday trip. We were following directions to the target bird from the issue of Bird Observer with the Spruce Grouse cover art. We heard a Grouse on the left side of the path while watching one on the right, so we know there were multiple birds, but we never saw more than one at a time. The bird ignored us, so we were able to get quite close. In the post-mortem on Eva's digital pictures we speculated that using a flash might have yielded better results. However we wonder whether that would have disturbed the bird. We also had 3 moose, a good night's sleep, glorious weather, a delicious breakfast & interesting conversation.

Wood Stork & Mountain Bluebird, both seen on Cape Cod, '94.
