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 mdbirding.com to read posts:
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.
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.
