Raptors Lost an Advocate

I have to sadly report that Bob Anderson, the guy that established the famous Decorah Eagle Cam has passed away. He was an acquaintance of mine for many years and was one of the important people that helped introduced the peregrine falcon back into the wild. He will be sorely missed by both birds and people.

I had written a children's book on the experience I had of helping Bob put bird bands on the legs of baby peregrine falcons. We had to climb a scary power plant smoke stack to get to them. I will never forget this experience. Both of the gentleman that I worked with on this occasion have passed away.

I haven't found a home for this book, but I will continue my pursuit for publication and dedicate the book to them.
