I birded Colliers Mills with Greg this morning. After our loop around Turnmill Pond we were poking around the grassy area at the entrance, when he pointed out this plaque to me, attached to a half-dead chestnut tree, up high, where it was hard to see. Why someone would place a memorial in a half-dead chestnut tree is a mystery. Perhaps the chestnut tree had some significance to Jasiu. Because it was so high up, I couldn't really read the sign clearly, but Greg's sharper eyes found the typo. Quite a guy, that Jasiu, more than a "woodsman," he contained multitudes.
