    I have thought about this blog over the last few years (usually when I’m bird-watching). Marcus’s art is memorable. I’m sorry to learn that he passed away.

    I was unaware of this bit of news. It was a joy to explore this blog… but the world has lost a creative personality. My heart goes out to his family. May his soul rest in peace.
