OBT: John Schmidt

Although i was in contact before this happened, i never heard an outcome until i thought to do a search today. John was a good friend, a good birder, and one of the most optimistic people i ever knew. His feeders hosted a pair of Broad-billed Hummingbirds for most of a summer when i was teaching at Sul Ross State. I am sorry that his passing did not get wider notice.
