Hello Rob!

I met you today in the park and you were kind enough to share both a great scope view of treetop hawk, and the advice not to put away the binoculars before safely outside the park...

I wanted to give you the link to the snowy owl photo I mentioned -

I didn't see a "contact" link on your site, but thinking you probably read the comments!

Thanks again!
