Audubon Society to cite ornithologist for service

April 19, 1994

The Audubon Society of Central Maryland will present the Conservation Award to Chandler S. Robbins for his lifelong service to the study and conservation of migratory birds during its next meeting at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow in the Florence Bain Senior Center at 5470 Beaverkill Road in Columbia.

Mr. Robbins is the senior ornithologist at the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

He is the founder of the Breeding Bird Survey and introduced breeding bird atlases to North America. He is also an author of the first field guide to make use of range maps and sonograms covering the United States and Canada.

He has also studied neo-tropical migrants on their wintering grounds, recognizing the problems facing these species on both their breeding and wintering territories.

He will present a slide program and address the chapter on "Wintering with Howard County Birds in Guatemala."
