Bird Watching

I'm certainly no "birder." I enjoy watching hawks soar and hunt, but I'm not much into using binoculars and.trying to classify what I see. I just try to enjoy the majesty and power of the more predatory birds.

I was highly impressed with a picture I found on Facebook - it shows the freedom and fire behind a falcon perched in a tree. Pic is below the fold if you are so inclined.

















I call this "Falcon in a Tree."

This was Jeffs last post. He passed on the morning of May 5th, 2014.

Rest in Peace, Jeffro. Never met ya in person, but you were still my friend.

Jess said...

Rest in peace, my friend. The world lost a great soul.

Aw, Jeffro! You will be missed. He came through Indy not all that long ago, and Tam and I had dinner with him.

Heard the news via Og.

I enjoyed shooting with him at a DuToit meet n' shoot up in D/FW some years back. Enjoyed a good lunch and conversation, afterwards, too.

He was a damn good man, and will be missed.

Sad news, never had the privilege of meeting him in meat space. May he rest in peace now.

I am so-so sorry. :-( He had a serious run of bad luck but bore his cross as best able - and and he came from the heartland near where my own relatives scrabbled and scratched out a living. Rest in peace.

What! Can't believe it.
Oh, Jeffro.

Ken said...

Havers.

Requiescat in pace, Jeffro.

Crud.

God Bless you, my friend, and may you Rest In Peace.

I've never met Jeffro and, while I've been expecting this, I'm still sad. He had a great talent for writing and told some wonderful stories on this blog.

Just a lurker here, but loved your wit, Jeffro. So so sorry. You will be missed.

lisa said...

I am so glad that I got a chance to meet him, even if it was through the blogging world! We will be thinking of you, Jeffro!

Man oh man, I am very saddened to read this. See you on the other side, Jeffro, old friend.
I will sure miss you.
Rest in Peace.

Pam said...

I guess I should have looked at the commments sooner, so sad to see Jeffro passed away, I kind of suspected so. So sad.

Jena G said...

Just found out, I saw it on his wall on fb. We talked there. I will miss you Jeffro. No doubt Rooster is purring up a storm at being with you again.

Lisa Paul said...

Rest in peace, Jeffro. Just found out after returning from a web hiatus. That's where we were friends, in cyberspace. I read his blog, he read mine. I got the better end of the deal as his comments on my blog were witty, informative and very much looked forward to.

For what it's worth, I remember Jeffro, as I knew him, here:
