Please allow an off topic post today. My side hobby to photography is Birding. I have enjoyed going out and watching birds for decades now and I just received an email with some sad news. Two of the giants in the birdwatching community passed away recently and I wanted to honor them with a short post. I have subscribed to their magazine and still buy an occasional copy at the newsstand and have learned so much from the Thompson family that I would just like to say thank you.
