Elliott Coues 1842 - 1899

"my enthusiasm runs so high, that sometimes as I stand alone in the wilderness, thousands of miles from home and friends, hot, tired, breathless with pursuit, but holding in my hand and gloating over some new or rare bird, I feel a sort of charitable pity for the rest of the poor world, who are not ornithologists!"
