Hello All,

I have been doing a bit of reading and, once again, I feel the lack of a
Latin/scientific terms dictionary specifically for birds.  

I have several for plants, namely: 
Debenham, C. [no date], The Language of botany, SGAP; 
Perrin, Don. [no date], Dictionary of botanical names. SGAP; and 
Neal, Bill. 1993. Gardener's Latin. Robert Hale Ltd. London.  

This combination is usually enough for my plant needs.

Does anyone know:
*       If there is a publication that fills that niche for "latin" bird names
and meanings extending to some other ornithological, scientific
*       Has anyone extracted the scientific names and meanings from Cayley and
sorted that lot into a dictionary-type list?

In hope,
