Passing of Jerry Olsen

The following message from the COG President Neil Hermes has just appeared on the mailing list of Canberra Ornithologists Group (COG)
It is with great sadness that I report the sudden passing of Jerry Olsen last Saturday.
Jerry was a great member and friend of COG, a personal friend to many, a consummate professional and a passionate birder.
Vale Jerry
(I'm sure many of us have some of Jerry's books on raptors and owls on the bookshelves, or have referred to his academic papers. A great loss to the birding community. Sandra H)
