In Memoriam

James Andrews Melrose Johnston

December 20, 1953-November 14, 2022

COOPERSTOWN—James Andrews Melrose Johnston, Jamie to family and friends, crossed the bar on November 14, 2022, following a prolonged battle with multiple ailments. He was 68.

Born on December 20, 1953, in New Haven, Connecticut, into a family of educators, naturalists, poets, historians, sailors and adventurers, Jamie never missed an opportunity to gleefully embrace novel experiences, such as when, as a toddler, he astonished his mother when she removed his rain hat in a New Haven store only to find a mouse cheerfully nestling in his hair.

Local Audubon Celebrates
55 Years, Works Toward Accessibility

By Susan O’Handley

Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society, formed as a non-profit organization in 1968, is celebrating its 55-year anniversary this fall and 52 years as an official Chapter of the National Audubon Society (having received its official charter in September of 1970). Each year, the organization celebrates by hosting a special Charter Dinner. This year’s event will take place on Friday, October 21 at the Quality Inn in Oneonta from 5:30-9 p.m.

The Charter Dinner includes a social hour, dinner buffet, and a special program, “The Essentials of Birding by Ear:
A Universal Method for Learning to Identify Birds Using Calls or Notes,” presented by John C. Robinson, ornithologist, author, and environmental consultant. The evening also includes the announcement of winners of the annual Charter Dinner Raffle, with prizes donated by DOAS board members, friends and local artisans. Tickets for the raffle are available online at www.doas.us and in-person now through the night of the event.
