While I was in the doctors office with my father yesterday, I typed off
a quick note on my phone in response to Peggy's question about the
Puyallup Snowy Owl that was seen a couple weeks ago. I probably should
have studied my words thoroughly before hitting send. I would like to
apologize to Peggy, as I was surprise to see that a couple of folks took
offense to my perceived tone. My intent was not to belittle or be rude
to Peggy, but to let her know that the bird she was seeking information
on was indeed in ebird, and that a quick search may have answered her
questions more quickly and thoroughly. I thought it would be helpful for
her to know that the bird was indeed seen once, never seen again, and
that information can be viewed on ebird. No ill intent whatsoever.

I am not the most eloquent person in print or in person, so please
excuse the perceived negative tone, it was certainly not my aim to
offend. I was trying to be nice in fact. In my regular life as an
aircraft mechanic, my communication is heavily peppered with grunts and
F words, eloquent writing free of profanity does not come easily to me.
Please excuse my poorly worded response. I have had one our office
assistants read this before hitting send, she suggested a couple edits
and it is now approved.

Have a great day,
