Very sad news that fellow birder and author Russell Slack passed away on Tuesday after a battle with liver cancer. Russ worked for BirdGuides from 2001 to 2007 and was instrumental in setting upÂ their popular bird news service. After leaving the company he wrote the well-regarded book Rare Birds: Where and When. Our thoughts are with his wife Linda and their two daughters at this sad time.
