To My OOS Peeps

Never one to pass up an opportunity for a goofy photograph, I've started taking a series of images of myself wearing my OOS "colors" in birdy places around the world. The OOS is the Ohio Ornithological Society, of which I am a founding board member. Ohio's largest statewide birding organization is growing like crazy and we're beginning to do some neat things for birds and for bird watchers both in Ohio and beyond.

This particular goofy shout-out to the OOS, the second such staged image, was taken from the top of Temple IV in Tikal, the ancient Maya city in northern Guatemala. In it I am wearing one of my OOS shirts (with a home tie-dye job) and I'm flashing the gangland symbol of the OOS, so my peeps know I'm still down with them even though I'm far away.

Hoo-rah! Go Bill! This weekend we decided the O's in OOS look a lot like the eye-rings on a Connecticut Warbler. Salute, back at ya!

Hey Cheryl!
Thanks for the hoo-rah! Is that better or worse than a Boo-yah?
