The NYT has an article about Australian ornithologist Joseph Forshaw.

Maybe not as famous as Steve Irwin (who was reportedly scared of parrots, by the way), but nearly everyone with parrots has a copy of his book, Parrots of the World, illustrated by W.T. Cooper. My own copy is parrot-eared (that is, one of my birds went to work on the top of the binding) and has bookmarks at the pages of particular species of interest (some that I own, others I would never dream of owning, such as the delightful Pionites).
