America's Top Birder Still Going Strong At Age 85!

From the Washington Post's Susan DeFord comes this wonderful tribute to Chandler S. Robbins, the creator of one of North America's most popular field guides, developer of the Breeding Bird Survey, and a guiding force behind the Maryland Breeding Bird Atlas. A few interesting facts that I learned from this article: his B.S. is in physics (from Harvard '40), he was a conscientious objector in WWII, and he doesn't keep an up-to-date life list of birds seen.
