>From Bud Anderson of the Falcon Research Group-

"After 36 years, it is time for me to move on from teaching the
"Hawkwatching in Western Washington" course that I have enjoyed so much.

hawk ID class out there. Therefore, I have been working with my friend and
colleague, Sue Cottrell, over the last few years to pass the torch on to

As many of you know, Sue is an excellent hawkwatcher and is intimately
acquainted with the Skagit Flats. She is more than qualified to helm the
class in future years. I encourage you all to support, learn and enjoy hawks
with her.

Good hawkwatching and thank you all,
