If you've seen his posts on Tweeters, you'll already have an idea of the level of consistent success he has in finding most of the target birds of a given area. . . and then some.  He was extremely adept at helping me find 5 lifers including Pine Grosbeak, White Winged Crossbill, Sharp-tail Grouse, Northern Pygmy Owl, and got me close to a Northern Saw-whet Owl so I could get a screaming great face shot I now have framed in my office.  He's refreshingly personable and adapts well to his clients' style of birding.
