Ornithologist
Ornithology
Ornithology
is a branch of zoology that concerns the study of birds. The word "ornithology" derives from the ancient Greek ὄρνις ornis ("bird") and λόγος logos ("rationale" or "explanation").

The science of ornithology has a long history and studies on birds have helped develop several key concepts in evolution, behaviour and ecology such as the defin
