I've been on VTBIRD for a number of years and am actually quite pleased to
have a bit of a window into the personalities of fellow birders.  I may
never lay eyes on you but I do love that many of you have become  more than
a list of birds seen on a particular day. Of course I love to know what
birds were seen/heard,  when and where but having just an inkling of who it
was that generated the list has made all the difference.

The greatest tragedy in mankind's entire history may be the hijacking of
morality by religion.

Arthur C Clarke (1917 - 2008)
