Great story, Eric Van Susteren, and beautiful photos. The cover of today's edition is magnificent!

Thank you to Michele Raffin (and interns) for your deeply important work preserving various bird species. I have great respect for your remarkable mission to help save these glorious creatures. Best of luck to you.

Michele's aviaries and her collection of birds is one of the finest. Her dedication to the birds and the cause is unending. I am proud to call her a dear friend. Excellent article.
