Looking at the current report on eBird an observer from Brazil has reported Natterer's Slaty-Antshrike. I was intrigued as to whether this was named after a person or an attribute of the bird (being suspicious of apostrophes).
It turns out to be the former: surprisingly, of the Austrian persuasion. This led me to wonder whether the name had meaning (cf smith meaning metalworker) and "natter" translates from German to mean adder (the reptile, not a mathematician).
