Born Isaac Eduardo Schnitzer, in Silesia ( present Poland ) was a man of varied 
and prodigious talents, certainly worth looking up in Google.

The first correct answer was unsurprising someone who invariably shows a “ dab 
“ hand in puzzles of this nature.

During his service with the British colonial administration in Africa in 
various capacities he was also a collector of fauna and flora, with specimens 
sent to Europe.

Stanley of Livingstone fame lead an expedition  ( public ally funded ) starting 
from the mouth of the Congo River in West Africa to extricate him from 
Equatoria ( Egypt ) which took about two years only to find Emin Pasha very 
reluctant to leave.

Finally, I would like to add a commercial for the recently concluded Lifeline 
Spring Bookfair.
My information about this bird came from a wonderful 600 page book entitled 
Birds and People by Mark Cocker, as new, costing a princely $ 5.
