Theodore Cross, RIP

After a full life of civil rights activism, accumulating scads of money in business, and photographing more birds than most people ever see, Theodore Cross has died at the age of 86. Like all birders, he knew he was condemned to not seeing every bird on the planet and, like all birders, accepted that fate. He wrote his own epitaph:

He Passed on

To a Better World

Still Waiting for

A Perfect Picture

Of a Reddish Egret.


Take the time, about two minutes, to watch and listen to the audio slide show that accompanies the article about his death.
