I was very sorry to hear about the death of Ron Austing (1931-2014). He was a childhood hero of mine as an author, wildlife photographer, and falconer. His books include his memoir, I Went to the Woods, and the raptor natural history books, The World of the Red-tailed Hawk, and The World of the Great Horned Owl. His photographs appeared often in Living Bird and a number of other national magazines over the years. I finally got to meet Ron several years ago, and we became friends. Here's a link to a blogpost about Ron by Rich Wagner.
