It is almost impossible to overstate Roger Tory Peterson’s influence on the pursuit of birding…or on the environmental movement, to which birding provided much of the original impetus. Dr. Peterson often stated that birds are a “litmus test” of the state of our environment. By studying and documenting the distribution patterns of birds, bird enthusiasts have contributed immeasurably to our environmental awareness and concern.
