River. Their most recent trip was a month in July and August 2003,
driving about 7000 miles, covering parts of South Africa, Botswana,
Zimbabwe, and Namibia. An Emeritus professor, retired from U.C.Davis

6. . In addition to numerous scientific papers, he is an antique duck
decoy collector and has co-authored the definitive book on decoys of the
Pacific Flyway. Active in Yolo Audubon and an 8 year volunteer with
Point Reyes Bird Observatory in the Snowy Plover program he monitors
