List of Contributors

The Birder’s Guide to Maryland & DC has been produced by an all-volunteer team of MOS members and friends. The only expenditures have been fees for web development, hosting, and maintenance. MOS is extremely grateful to all who have given freely of their time and knowledge to produce this Birder’s Guide and bring it to the public.

We are especially grateful to Bonnie Ott of the Howard County Bird Club for her photo of a Baltimore Oriole that graces the top banner of the home page. Also to Jo Solem for her essay dedicating the website to the memory of Chandler and Eleanor Robbins.
