  • James L. Baillie Memorial Student Research Award

    Melanie Colón

    For nearly 50 years Jim Baillie worked as Assistant Curator in the Ornithology Department of the Royal Ontario Museum. Although not formally educated in ornithology, his knowledge of birds was unsurpassed. Jim Baillie had the ability to share his knowledge with thousands of people, amateurs and professionals alike, through newspaper columns, scientific publications and informal conversations with countless visitors to his museum office.


    Baillie's enthusiasm and knowledge have inspired hundreds of naturalists to pursue bird study and conservation. Select this link to read Dr. H.J.M. Barnett's personal account Reflections on J.L. Baillie. Both the James L. Baillie Memorial Fund and the Baillie Birdathon have been named to honour this great Canadian naturalist, conservationist and educator.
