But Bill knew what I was. The only other person was this adorable 11 year old boy with red hair who sat down, looked at me and said, "Mmmm, I would say that you are a northern gosawk."

He said, "Bill Clark, yes. My mother took a class from him when I was 5 months old. I really don't remember much."
Yeah, in another ten years, I see this kid will be hanging out with the rest of us bird festival bums.
