Hi folks,

On the weekly "Wednesday" Bird Walk at Nisqually NWR (which was held on Tuesday, New Year's Eve day this week . . .), we were joined by a young man from Atlanta, Georgia named John Patten Moss.

Tom Bowden noted that: "John, or JP, is an excellent birder and a really nice guy. He's so dedicated that he did the boardwalk with Jon and I despite heavy rain and 15-20 MPH winds! We all enjoyed his company."

Here's a link to the blog for his big year on the unicycle:

After Refuge volunteer Phil Kelley introduced himself as the "leader of this gaggle," JP seriously asked if this was really a gaggle. It turns out that there is a group of gay and lesbian birders in Georgia that call themselves "The Gaggle."

The birders on the Wednesday Walk at Nisqually are not exclusively LGTBQ, but certainly are welcoming of all and any who wish to join the group every Wednesday - rain or shine - at 8 a.m. at the Visitors' Center.

In any event, having just finished my own big year, I am wishing J.P. the best on his non-motorized Big Year.

Best,
- Jon. A
