Hi Tweets

I thought I would let you know that John Friars passed Wednesday - he was
days shy of turning 90. As some of you may remember, John was a member of
Seattle Audubon Society since I think the 1940's - as a kid -, and he told
of a class Earl Larrison was teaching for SAS back then. He led field trips
for SAS and Vashon Audubon for many years and he was active in both the SAS
and Vashon Christmas Count's. John was an SAS Master Birder and was on the
Committee running the program, when I took the class (1996-7). He was an
excellent birder with fantastic hearing, was an incredible source of
information to birders - he talked all the time - and enjoyed relating to

I know many of you Tweets have gone on field trips with John and know what
an excellent birder and leader he was. He will be missed.

Good Birding!
