In 1952, the noted ornithologist S. Dillon Ripley published a remarkable little book on bird-hunting in Nepal, entitled Search for the Spiny Babbler. As bird-watching is this month’s cover feature, a look back at that first ornithological expedition to Nepal is both timely and, in a word, fascinating.
