Tom Parsons, shown here with Cape May hawk counter Melissa Roach in fall, 2010, passed away today. Tom was a long time Associate Naturalist for Cape May Bird Observatory, and a good friend to conservation. His contributions to Cape May ornithology and education were many, and he will be deeply missed
As he went on in years, Tom made me realize how important handicapped-accessible birding sites were - we all know someone who profits from access to nature.
Feel free to comment with your thoughts and reflections on Tom.
