Our dear friend Bobby Kurtz passed away today, after several months of illness.

Bobby was an unforgettable birder, whose enthusiasm added excitement to our collective adventure of birds. Being with him was a natural part of decades of discovery for us. We learned a lot together, and enjoyed it all immensely.

Details of arrangements will follow soon.

Northwest winds are forecast tomorrow at the Fire Island hawkwatch, where Bobby sought them so often.
