About the Author

James Jobling is a former civil servant with a lifelong interest in birds and their names.


'It is this vast translation work for which the author should be congratulated hugely.' Birdwatch (March 2010) 'This is a serious piece of academic work...yet anyone who's curious about "Latin" names should have this book. Highly recommended.' Cage & Aviary Birds (January 2011) 'a mine of information' Bulletin of the British Ornothologists Club (2010) 'superbly thorough...makes for fascinating browsing' Birdwatching Magazine (2010)
