Pamela Rasmussen and Species Splits

To birdwatchers, both seasoned and novice, Pamela Rasmussen needs no introduction. A prolific ornithologist and one of the foremost experts on Asian birds, Rasmussen has to her credit the authorship of the bird-bible 'Birds of South Asia; the Ripley Guide' as well as countless new species descriptions and splits. The rediscovery of the Forest Owlet, a critically endangered bird that had been presumed extinct for over a century, is also attributed to Ms. Rasmussen.

The cartoon appears on my Gocomics page today. (Read more about Pamela Rasmussen here.)
