Columbus journalist, author, birder, and Columbus Audubon member and volunteer Tom Thomson passed away on December 5, 2015. Long-time Columbus Audubon members will recall Tom as an advocate for birds, a volunteer who served as CA president, and especially as a field trip leader who instilled his own love for birds and birding in so many others. Tom received the Columbus Audubon Song Sparrow Award in 1998.
Margaret Marten wrote a lovely tribute to Tom in the January/February, 2016 issue of the Short North Gazette. You can read it at the Gazette’s web site.
From all who knew him — thanks, Tom.
