Tonight noted ornithologist Doug Stotz of the Field Museum of Natural History, who was one of the original "ringer" volunteer searchers in Arkansas, was on the radio on WGN-720 AM here in Chicago.
An astute listener (who is an excellent writer, quite witty, and, I might add, incredibly handsome) sent in a question asking Doug what he thought of Sibley's article, and asking him whether he thought the IBWO still existed.
The verdict? Doug is still a believer! Although he did qualify his answer by admitting that his good relationship with Fitz makes him a not totally unbiased source.
We don't just report the news here, we make it!!!
