Aelred Geis tried to make the world better for birds and people, in that order. He studied ways to coax birds back into urban areas, helped persuade Jim Rouse to set aside 1,000 acres of prime Howard County real estate for a nature preserve, turned his Clarksville farm into a wildlife sanctuary and not only built a better bird feeder, but also filled it with superior seed that he developed. Geis could be loud and confrontational with a touch of arrogance when the circumstances warranted it, his friends fondly remember.

Open a book on woodcock hunting, and probably the writer will recall an episode along a stretch of creek bottom in Maine, Michigan, Wisconsin or Minnesota. But woodcock hunting in Central Maryland deserves a chapter.Al Geis of Clarksville is a guy who knows much of the woodcock, a small, secretive bird that feeds on worms and insects at night and lies low during the day. The woodcock, in fact, is Geis' game bird of choice."I love to hunt grouse and woodcock in combination," said Geis, 62, an expert on migratory game birds who retired from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service after more than 30 years of service.
