Subject: [Va-bird] Info about Chan Robbins
This is taken from the mdbirding group email, and posted by Jane Fallon who
I would like to thank for keeping us informed. I don't think she'd mind if
I shared it with Virginia birders. Anyone can access to read

It is with sadness that we report that Chandler Robbins, our world famous
ornithologist, passed away on Monday March 20th. He was a member of the
Patuxent Bird Club since its beginning and a founder of MOS.

Attached is a link to a tribute from the National Audubon Society

His obituary appeared in the Washington Post earlier this week:

There will be a memorial service on April 15 at the First United Methodist
Church in Laurel. Details will be announced later. Also a Life
Celebration is being planned by the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center where
Chan worked for 70 Years, date to be announced.
