from Mike Horn,
It is my sad duty to inform you of the passing of a truly legendary birder.
Richard English passed away on Monday July 11, 2011.
Richard was a life member of the New Haven Bird Club for approximately 65 years and was president from 1965 to 1967. He was also a member of several other birding organizations.
Most notably, he spent time on the rare records committee of the Connecticut
Ornithological Association where he was member for many years.
Richard died at his home on East Rock Road in New Haven, CT. after a long illness.
A memorial service is planned for September.
