520    A thoroughly engaging and authoritative history of modern 
       ornithology, tracing how the study of birds has been 
       shaped by a succession of visionary and often-
       controversial personalities, and by the unique social and 
       scientific contexts in which these extraordinary 
       individuals worked. This beautifully illustrated book 
       opens in the middle of the nineteenth century when 
       ornithology was a museum-based discipline focused almost 
       exclusively on the anatomy, taxonomy, and classification 
       of dead birds. It describes how in the early 1900s 
       pioneering individuals such as Erwin Stresemann, Ernst 
       Mayr, and Julian Huxley recognized the importance of 
       studying live birds in the field, and how this shift 
       thrust ornithology into the mainstream of the biological 
       sciences. The book tells the stories of eccentrics like 
       Colonel Richard Meinertzhagen, a pathological liar who 
       stole specimens from museums and quite likely murdered his
       wife, and describes the breathtaking insights and 
       discoveries of ambitious and influential figures such as 
       David Lack, Niko Tinbergen, Robert MacArthur, and others 
       who through their studies of birds transformed entire 
       fields of biology.
