I am new to the birding community and haven't put all the faces with the names.  Could anyone remind me if I've met him?  I went to the Fall ASM meeting last year the Spring meeting this year.
He sounds like a very special person, I hope I did have the chance to meet him before his passing.

Bill Rudden was one of the nicest guys I've ever met. He was always willing to show me something, to teach me something.
I remember watching him with his eye pinned to a spotting scope, carefully looking over a flock of sparrows in one of the meadows at Tower Grove Park. He was so painstaking. I remember thinking, "You'll never be as good a birder as Bill Rudden. You don't have the patience."
And Bill was a very good birder.

mmWell, Bill, I hope the birding is good wherever you are.
