Wilson Beat Audubon to the Birds


Even John James Audubon considered Alexander Wilson the father of American ornithology. Wilson discovered nearly 50 new species of birds and more birds are named in his honor than any other person in the world: Wilson’s Warbler, Wilson’s Plover, Wilson’s Phalarope, Wilson’s Petrel, Wilson’s Snipe, Wilson’s Tern, and Wilson’s Thrush.
