A Few Classic Blog Posts Featuring Lillian

Belize 2006a 100
Can't think of a better way to ring in 2019 than with a few blog posts featuring the amazing Lillian (Sis) Thomas, who is heading off with Stiles to live in Massachusetts.

A post about the Lillian Thomas Natural Area is here.

A post about the beginnings of the Celery Farm's butterfly garden is here.

A post celebrating Lillian's 90th birthday is here.

John Workman's tribute to Sis and Stiles and the Celery Farm is here.

A Few Classic Blog Posts W/Stiles

Sties with binosI thought one of the best ways to ring out 2018 would be with a look back at some of my blog posts featuring Stiles Thomas.

One of my favorites is Stiles' Celery Farm checklist for 2006, the first year of the blog.  Stiles had 175 species and defeated Fred Weber on a technicality: Stiles pointed out that Fred did not have his list notarized. (What was Fred thinking?)  You can see Stiles' actual list here.

Photos of Stiles' best carved snake ever (possibly) are here.

A 36-year-old poem about Stiles is here.

The classic "Birder's Dirge" poem by Stiles is here.

A video of Stiles' releasing Laura, a rehabilitated Red-shouldered Hawk, is here.
