Roger Tory Peterson was born in Jamestown, New York in 1908. He began birding when he was eleven and wrote, illustrated and published his first field guide when he was 26 years old. He received 22 honorary degrees in a variety of disciplines ranging from art to science. In 1980, President Carter presented him with the President’s Medal of Freedom, America’s highest civilian award, in honor of his cultural contributions.
In his lifetime, RTP’s contributions have been recognized with nearly every major award in the fields of ornithology, natural history, wildlife conservation, and public service, and he was even nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize — twice. He advanced and popularized birding. Thank you RTP.
Good luck birding. Good luck winning a copy of his field guide. And happy International Migratory Bird Day
