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

He self-published many books, 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
