My deepest sympathies to Bronwyn's family. I am happy that she was able to do so much with the birds she loved! I have very fond memories of travelling to the Canada Wide Science Fair in Ottawa with Bronwen and team Toronto.

I met Bronwyn only once when I visited the Birdwatch store to talk about an event they are involved in at St. Timothy's. I was struck by her passion and commitment for the natural world that she loved, knew well, and has left too soon. My condolences to you all.

Dear Dalziel family,
My deepest condolences on the tragic loss of your dear daughter Bronwyn. She is gone far too soon and I hope that there is some consolation in the knowledge that she had some very special experiences, and truly lived in a way that many with a longer time on earth are not able to. The support of her family was huge in allowing her to develop in her own unique way and to get out and involved with birds and banding at a young age. I understand why the common grackle was her favourite bird, and I will think of her when I see them.
Wishing you strength and, with time, peace in the memory of her special place in your and so many others lives.

There are no words that i can say to make this sadness go away. I was fortunate enough to have seen Bronwyn grow over the years. She was one of my sons oldest and best friends. She made a difference in so many lives. I hope that you know she was an angel on earth. As one parent to another i wish you peace and love. You did an amazing job. The world was a much better place because of her. I hope that all these wishes help you in the days and months to come. I am truly sorry for your loss.

Cathy and Robert, our thoughts and prayers are with. There are no words that can give you comfort at this time. Over time the pain will ease. Allie, Emily and Bronwyn were class mates. Those memories will be cherished. You are both strong. Our love is with you. Pam and Steve Johns

My deepest condolences. I met Bronwyn a couple of times at the Tommy Thompson Park Research Station during the annual Spring Bird Festival. I so enjoyed chatting with her about her studies and her tireless work with the birds she deeply loved; I could tell right away that she was a lovely, caring human being. I am so sorry for your loss -- it is also a great loss to the birding community and to the world of ornithology.

Serendipity was at work when five years ago David at Birdwatch was looking for a part time salesperson and gained an eager and incredibly knowledgeable student. I was still working at the store occasionally and was impressed with Bronwyn's subtle humour and expertise. As we travelled more Bronwyn agreed to check our house and keep the feeders topped up. I chatted with her the week before Easter when I dropped the key off and felt the utmost confidence in her judgement. May the wind stay beneath her wings and her spirit soar.
