Dr. No - Ian Fleming


Does anyone remember how much I complained about the bird information in Diana Gabaldon's Dragonfly in Amber?  Well, I commend Fleming for getting his bird info right!  Mind, you, I know he went on a field trip with ornithologists who were studying Roseate Spoonbills, which is no doubt where he got the idea for the bird island of Dr. No.
