|DR. GEORGE H. LOWERY AWARD|
|The Louisiana Ornithological Society recognizes and honors|
|DR. SIDNEY GAUTHREAUX|
on this 23rd day of April 2005 for his positive influence on Louisiana birding and on bird and habitat conservation. His long-term studies of bird migration using weather surveillance radar created the science of ‘radar ornithology’ and has provided an important technique in deciphering the fascinating migration of neotropical birds. HIs continuing research along the Louisiana Gulf Coast has increased awareness of the decline in numbers and flights of neotropical migrants crossing the Gulf of Mexico. Many government agencies and conservation organizations use these studies and his innovative use of radar to study migration and to promote habitat conservation in Louisiana and throughout the Americas.
