From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dr. phil. h.c. Otmar Reiser (1861-1936)

Othmar Reiser (21 December 1861 – 31 March 1936) was an Austrian ornithologist.

Reiser was curator of the National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Sarajevo, where it is possible to see his collection of birds of the Balkan Peninsula (about 10,000 specimens).

In 1903 he took part in an expedition of the Austrian Academy of Sciences to north-east Brazil, during which he was the first to observe the Spix's macaw in the wild since its original discovery 84 years earlier.
