James Little Baillie was a Canadian naturalist and ornithologist. He joined the staff at the Royal Ontario Museum, in the department of Ornithology, in 1922 and would serve consecutively as technical assistant, research assistant and assistant curator until his death in 1970. He began writing a weekly column on birds in the Toronto Evening Telegram in 1931 and would continue for 39 years. He would eventually write feature articles and host guiding nature tours through the Telegram. He also worked as a prolific lecturer and writer on the topic of ornithology, giving lectures at the University of Toronto and penning over 300 articles.
