> Friends,

> I?m going to be in Mazatlan for a week in April and am looking for recommendations for guides. We?re going kayaking and snorkeling with Onca. They also have a trip to the tufted jay preserve. Have any of you been there? Any experience with Onca or another recommendation in the area?

> I am very saddened to hear of the loss of Ken Knittle, he was a true leader in the Washington birding community. He and his spouse, Laurie, published the Washington Birder newsletter and compiled and maintained all of the county checklists. The WOS field trips that Ken led were legendary and a great experience for those wishing to explore different areas of our state, one of his lasting contributions is the concept of county birding lists and in 1993 he was the first person to list at least 100 species in each county and encouraged many others to attempt this challenge.

> Laurie Knittle has asked me to let everyone know that Ken Knittle passed away at home in Hazel Dell (Vancouver) on Sunday evening, January 5. He was a month shy of his 70th birthday. The ?Godfather of Washington Listing? and co-founder with Scott Ray of Washington Birder, Ken had been diagnosed having Parkinson?s in 2014 with complications from the disease curbing his ability to get out and bird. That said ? an errant Ferruginous Hawk reported at Woodland Bottoms in October was just too good to pass up and it became his final tick (#221 for Cowlitz) on a very long statewide list. Ken was a remarkable friend, mentor, birder supreme ? many of you reading this have special memories of his legendary field trips (and cornball humor ? sheesh!). But, all kidding aside, he was all about the birds: he could hear them, he could make them visualize out of a canopy, he could get you on them no matter your skill, and there wasn?t a back road in Washington his tires (or mine!) hadn?!

> t trod. He relished telling tales of birding with Patrick Sullivan ? ?DANG, we always had (insert species) at this location, every single time? and he was a familiar/friendly figure in the darndest birding places whether landfill, STP, park, cemetery, pier, tideflats, shoreline, meadow, field or mountaintop. There will be more details of Ken?s extraordinary contribution to Washington birding to come, as will details of a celebration of his life.
