Unfortunately, TN has lost another of her birding brethren much too soon. Bill
Pulliam, the driving force behind eBird in TN for a good number of years now,
has passed away. Bill thought he had Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, but it was
in fact an aggressive lung cancer that had spread by the time they realized
what was actually going on. Bill is being laid to rest today on his property
near Hohenwald. Bill had a great analytical mind, and wil be missed by all who
knew him, and as Scott Somershoe said, was a hoot to bird with!
I birded with Bill a number of times, but not as much as some. I will always
remember the email discussions we would have from time to time. Often we
approached a problem or issue from different directions, but always with
respect on both ends. Still in a state of shock here over this.....
Just wanted to help get the word out. Bird on my friend!!
