Subject: [obol] Re: fiction books with birders as protagonists?
Patrick O'Brian's Master and Commander series of seafaring novels (British
Navy, early 1800's) features ship's surgeon Stephen Maturin, who is an
experienced naturalist.

There was/is a set of crime/mystery novels centered around a birder, but I
can't conjure the author's name.
