Kenn Kaufman honored by scientific group

Kenn Kaufman of Oak Harbor, recently was honored for his contributions to the scientific study of birds. 

The recognition came from the American Ornithologists’ Union (AOU), one of the world’s leading professional societies for bird study. For 130 years, the AOU has been promoting science and publishing the results of original research, and virtually all the professional ornithologists in the U.S. and Canada belong to the group. Basic membership is open to anyone with a serious interest in bird study, but there are two honorary levels of membership. Individuals may be chosen as Elective Members for “significant contributions to ornithology.” From among the Elective Members, a few are chosen as Fellows for “exceptional and sustained contributions to ornithology.”
