Charles Johnson Maynard


Charles Johnson Maynard

Charles Johnson Maynard (1845 – October 15,1929) was an American naturalist and ornithologist born in Newton, Massachusetts. He was a collector, a taxidermist, and an expert on the vocal organs of birds.

He published many books himself, unusual for the period because they contained color plates produced by a process that Maynard invented.

Maynard named the Caribbean subspecies of the Osprey, Pandion haliaetus ridgwayi, for another American ornithologist, Robert Ridgway
