For bird lovers, The E.A. McIlhenny Natural History Museum at Louisiana State University offers this online exhibit dedicated to neotropical ornithology. The exhibit's title comes from 2011 exhibition catalog authored by Tom Taylor and Michael L. Taylor. This online exhibit is an online adaptation of that catalog, offering extensive information about neotropical birds and the history of the study of such birds. In this exhibit, visitors can learn more about dozens of naturalists, museum collectors, individual collectors (including Charles Darwin), and others who studied birds of South and Central America. Visitors can browse these short biographies by category, including traveling naturalists, opening scientific exploration, and modern fieldwork. These biographies are accompanied by a number of fascinating primary documents in addition to gorgeous bird illustrations.
