    William (Bill) T. Cooper, 1934-2015, was an Australian artist best known for his ornithological illustration of birds. He originally trained as a landscape and seaside artist but began to focus on natural history illustration after the successful reception for his first book A portfolio of Australian birds (Sydney : Reed, 1968). After this publication Cooper teamed up with Canberra ornithologist Joseph Forshaw with whom he went on to publish eight books including their last work Pigeons and Doves in Australia.
