If as Henry David Thoreau wrote in Walden, “Most men lead lives of quiet desperation,” then surely the antidote for this fate is passion. Max Parker had an enduring passion and it made him a pillar of the Arkansas birding community. We dedicate this website to Max and to Helen Parker and to all the others with a passion for birds and birding.
