Alexander was born in  June 18,1886. His complete name was Frank Alexander , but he never used his first name. He became an ornithologist and an avian paleontologist. In 1909 he was hired as a bird taxidermist. From 1910 to 1924 he worked with the  U.S. Bureau of Biological Survey  Department of Agriculture. In 1913 he began  bird banding as a part  of water flow management. In 1914 he started a research  that ended in 1915 and he was able to demostrate that ducks die after eating  lead shot. In 1925 he was appointed as assistant secretary of the  Smithonian Institution. In 1927 's work indicated that  the yellow-shouldered  blackbirdonce occured through out Puerto rico. died in 1978. He still continued research at the smithonian for another quater century until his dying day.

I decided to do my research on Alexander because i had never heard of him before. I thought it would be interesting to learn something new. Something I haden't learned about before and it actually was pretty cool to learn about his life and the things he accomplished during his life time.
