Tweeters,

This request was re-forwarded to me. Tweeters seemed like the logical way for these folks to find someone to assist them. I hope this request inspires a very 'birdy' weekend.

> Hello,

> We are Bob & Terri Kochert of Chambersburg, PA, planning a trip to Seattle Oct. 16-18, 2018. We got your name and email address from Birding Pal saying that you would be interested in taking visitors out on a birding expedition there in Seattle area. We recently read an article, “Birding on Budgeted Time in Seattle,” by Brendan McGarry, published in the March 2106, Birder’s Guide. After reading the article we got very excited about seeing the birds of Seattle and are just now able to act on seeing the birds in your “neck of the woods.” Several places in the article were highlighted: Myrtle Edwards Park, Alki and West Seattle waterfront, Lincoln Park, Seward Park, Interlaken Park, Discovery Park and Union Bay Natural Area. The birds we are interested in seeing are: “sooty” Fox Sparrow, Chestnut-backed Chickadee, Surfbirds, Black Turnstones, Golden-crowned Sparrow, Ancient Murrelet, Pacific Wrens, Western and Clarks’ Grebes, and Band-tailed Pigeons. Of course, we are interested in seeing any of the Seattle birds. The emboldened species would be “lifers” for us.

> Do you think you could help us on these dates, Oct. 16-18, 2108, taking us out to the various “hot spots” to see the Seattle birds? We would of course pay the gas and buy you a meal or two, depending on the time you choose to give us. We intend to rent a car as well. Thus, we could use our rental with your help in navigation, or we can use your car with you as the driver.

> We thank you in advance for even considering doing this. Thank you for reading our letter. We hope to hear from you soon.
