BirdNote: Birding With Grandpa, With Dick Ashford

Dick Ashford, president of Klamath Bird Observatory, completed a career with the Navy before learning about birds in earnest.

Like many, he's taking time to share his love of birds — and looking for Red-shouldered Hawks, like this one — with younger generations. 

One of the lucky kids is his grandson, Jack. Dick says: "The day after Thanksgiving, I was able to show him, in one day, a Golden Eagle, a White-tailed Kite, and a Northern Harrier plus an assortment of waterfowl and shorebirds." A good day for grandfather and grandson!
