His innovative research programs in other aspects of birds and bird behavior, including the chemistry of feather pigments, advance our avian knowledge. Furthermore, through his many presentations to the public, his active participation in the Shreveport Society for Nature Study Bird Study Group, his ornithology classes at LSUS and his editorship of the Journal of Louisiana Ornithology, he has inspired and enlightened many persons in the joys of observing birds and encouraged them to conserve these fascinating creatures.
