Hey Frank,

Thanks for posting this and for remembering Ed. Great article that really brought back fond memories.  I have so many great ones of days spent walking with Ed that will never fade.  He was truly a one of a kind.  I put several shots of Ed on my web site for those that knew him to see as well as those that were not as fortunate to have had Ed as a friend.

One image is of Ed with a dog he befriended at Lighthouse Pt while doing the hawk count.  Another is him sitting on a log beside a beaver pond we found in the woods of Litchfield County and the last is him taking a picture of one of our "regular" saw-whet owls in winter who we knew as Murphy.  I also put up one of Murphy himself that is a 30 year old slide.  I used these images in my first slide program more than 15 years ago at the New Haven Bird Club and there wasn't a dry eye in the place!  I knew I couldn't "bomb" with that for an ending.....

Hi all,  i wrote a tribute to Ed Shove, the first hawk compiler at Lighthouse Point Park. It was published in a New Haven Bird Club newsletter, but for those of you who may not have seen it, it's now posted on our blog at: http://ctaudubon.blogspot.com/  Ed was a great guy...  and I hope you enjoy the article, "Ed's Count."
