Susan Diller Craig, also known as “Mom” on this site. February 18, 1942 to March 24, 2015. She nudged me into bird watching over ten years ago, when she gave me a pole-mounted bird feeder as a house-warming present. Earlier this month, on March 1, right before I dropped her off back home from visiting Gram–her mother and my grandmother–we spotted a pair of Pileated Woodpeckers in her neighborhood. Someone watching would be hard-pressed to say which of us was more excited. More here and here.
