The Real James Bond & Cassin's Kingbird

A Cassin's Kingbird was photographed at the Cape May Hawkwatch on Sunday morning, Oct. 13. If accepted by NJBRC, this will be the first state record.  

That struck me as very cool since this bird of the Southwest was named for John Cassin, who like the real James Bond was an ornithologist who worked for the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia, roughly 80 miles away. 

What else do Cassin and Bond have in common?  I guess you'll have to wait until my book comes out in February.
