Hi Tweets

I can second Khanh's comments on Mike Marsh. I first met and birded with
Mike back in the 70's in the Sacramento area. Mike was always one of those
folks that you were glad to have along on a birding trip, and all his
benefits carried over into his life away from birding.

I only had a few times to bird with him up here in Washington and it was
nice to reconnect with him.

He will be missed!

Good Birding Mike

Subject: [Tweeters] A kind birder and wonderful person-Mike Marsh

It is with great sadness that I inform you, the passing of a great person,
dear friend and birder, Mike Marsh. He passed away yesterday and was so
resilient in fighting his battle with Parkinson's the last 14 years.

Mike was a kind, funny, gentle, and creative person gifted with many
talents. We had many great birding adventures and saw many amazing birds
together. He inspired me to be the very best in my birding and how I treat
people. I learned to be kind, humble, generous and loving. This has
provided with such great karma in all aspects of my life and I am very happy
and successful because of his influence! He encourage me to be a
professional bird guide, and I am now successful and having the time of with
birding and photography.

I hope those who have met/birded with Mike has also felt an influence or an
impression. Mike had a passion for owls. Today, I came home and found a
Barred Owl in our yard---in some ways, it was Mike saying goodbye to me.

I am grateful to have cross paths with him and will miss him dearly,

With peace, love and good light to all.
