Dear Peter …

Josie and I just returned from Central America a few days ago … you remember .. I told you about the trip a few months ago (smile) …

Well … (grin) … we were extremely lucky to catch a glimpse of the newest variation of the Quetzal bird … Splendorous Resplendent … only seen once before by the noted ornithologist, Roger M. Milhouse, PhD, on his last trip to the region back in 2001.

You remember him don’t you? … the bird guy from back in our university days? LOL … I know you couldn’t have forgotten him (grin) …

well … You can imagine our excitement yet we were able to quickly get his photo. No not Roger’s photo (grin) … Do check the attachment (smile)

After we returned I sent a copy to Roger who immediately emailed back that it was indeed the bird that he had seen.

I plan to meet with him in a few months to tentatively plan a trip back to the area where we sited the bird. I’m so excited I can hardly wait.

Would you be interested in joining me when I meet with Roger? .. Josie is tied up with another project and won’t have time to help me out on this one. I know how interested you are in the wildlife of Central America so …

get back to me as soon as you can … if you’re really interested I’d love to have you join us (big smile)
