Tom Parsons

This weekend, the Cape May birding community lost a great friend and supporter, as Tom Parsons passed away on Sunday May 15th. CMBO will hold a memorial for Tom in due course. Having had Tom help out on every one of my Wednesday walks - come rain or shine - I shall rest happy in the knowledge that he is now making wheel ruts in the sand in a better place, where I bet the Birds of Paradise are awesome...

 Don Freiday sent me this great picture of Tom in one of his favorite places, the Cape May Hawkwatch Platform, where we all benefited from Tom's great wealth of knowledge gathered during a lifetime of birding. Hawk Counter Melissa Roach stands attentive. As the sands of time trickle by, the old impart their knowledge to the young.
