Henry Eliot Howard (November 13, 1873 - December 26, 1940) was an English ornithologist, noted for being one of the first to describe territoriality behaviours in birds in a detailed manner.

Howard was born at Stone House near Kidderminster and studied atStoke Poges and Eton College.He showed from his earliest childhood an intense love of natural history. It was not until 1914 that his first work, British Warblers, was published. Continually working on the theory of territory, he published Territory in Bird Life in 1920, followed by An Introduction to the Study of Bird Behaviour, Nature of a Bird's World and lastly A Waterhen's World, in 1940.

Although his home was always in Worcestershire, much of his time was spent on the wild coast of Donegal and in the west of Ireland shooting, fishing and studying natural history. He died at his home, Clareland, Stourport-on-Severn.
