Thanks for posting Bobby's passing to the birding community. Living in
Western NY, I have not made it down to Region 10 for birding as often as I
would like. And yet, serendipitously I ran into Bobby three times on those
rare occasions when I did, which shows how active a birder he was. He was
very helpful with lots of good information about where to go to look for
birds in the area. He seemed like a bit of a character, certainly someone
most people would remember upon meeting. He talked a lot and I liked him and
enjoyed birding with him. The last time I saw him he picked out a Western
Sandpiper at Jamaica Bay for me and my friends, which was very much
appreciated. My condolences to you, Pat and Shai, and to the entire NYC/Long
Island birding community. May he rest in peace.


Good birding to all,



Willie D'Anna
