Remembering Ed Henry

Ed Henry, San Diego Audubon Board member, photographer, volunteer, and friend sadly passed in December of 2022. He was known amongst our flock as a steady, thoughtful leader on the SDAS board of directors, including a term as president.

Chris Redfern, past Executive Director, shared this: “He was a great one, handling the business of the organization with a calm, unflappable manner, a lovely smile, and a twinkle in his eye.” He is also well known as an avid and skilled bird photographer whose photos inspired, educated, and were freely shared for Sketches and other chapter publications. 

Ed’s heart overflowed with love for his family, friends, travel, nature, music, Audubon, and generally the beauty of life. Thank you, Ed, for warming all of our hearts and filling them with great memories of times spent with you. Please enjoy this special tribute to Ed and his beautiful photography.
