We do, and some of us have noticed that he is ticked off and probably has reason but he should come back anyway..I miss his humour and am anxious to hear about the "bread truck".

Why do his last postings say that he's a 'guest'?  He's been a member here for a long time.  Where did he go?

I have to admit ... he's grown on me and I miss him.  I miss the photos.  It's about time for the "best of" for February.  We're missing the renovation of the bread truck as well.  See ... we DO care!  ;)
 
Hey Seilerbird ... I've been p***ed off millions of times in the forum over the last 16 years or so, but there is no place in cyberspace I enjoy more than right here.  ;D   C'mon, now, you miss us, too ... right?   :-*

I was hoping to ask him what kind of birds these are.  They come to my neighbor's tree every afternoon about 5 pm.  Makes Happy Hour

Lots of birders here. Looks like a Kestrel. Is it about 8-10 inches with a rusty colored back?

Kestrels are very cool looking birds. You see them a lot sitting on power/phone lines.

I looked up Kestrels on the web and they are a solid match.  Here is another picture I took.  I had a hard time holding the camera steady.  The birds were about 100 ft away, high in our neighbor's tree.  I took the pictures with a Panasonic DMC-FZ150 using the auto focus setting.  This is a camera Seilerbird recomended to me and I am super happy with the camera.

I was going to say "Sparrow Hawk."  I looked them up and it turns out that's another name for the Kestrel.

Who ticked him off?

I know it cannot be me, because I have not been here for a while. ;D

Hi Don, and welcome back. I was thinking just the other day that we hadn't seen you for some time.

As you know from your years around forums, folks pick up their marbles and leave for various reasons. Some delete their account on the way out, while others just don't return. In most cases, we can only guess what their reasons are.

I just wonder why they feel the need to burn the bridge behind them.

Don, in my opinion, some insecure soles souls just have a flair for the dramatic. :D   (if that doesn't bring him out of hiding, nothing will :-\ )

Doesn't he have a blog on a photo site...thought I saw a link to it on one of his posts. I just met him for the first time this year at QZ and was looking foreward to getting to know him better.

Comments like not taking his meds is one example of why he is ticked among others.  My observation is that there were inappropriate comments and I don't know why people feel the need to stir the pot when he made it clear that he wasn't happy with some of them but yet people keep going.  I understand that the intent was for fun but there is a time to stop when it is apparent that the person wasn't finding any humour in it, I find it as Bullying.  Just my thoughts and observation.  I will miss reading his posts and viewing his photography, I am pretty sure he won't be back this time.

Tom is fine -- we interacted about a week ago. He had not as yet sold his old rig and was busy working on the new one. And was still in Phoenix.

As to why he left, that was a personal decision he made so I feel it not my place to interpret and relay it here.

He is looking forward very much to his venture up the CA coast that will begin in San Diego as soon as he gets the old rig sold. So am sure the Picasa monthly display of his work will continue then.
