This chapter presents an autobiography of Masakazu Konishi. Konishi has been one of the leaders in avian neuroethology since the early 1960's. He is known for his idea that young birds initially remember a tutor song and use the memory as a template to guide the development of their own song. He was the first to show that estrogen prevents programmed cell death in female zebra finches. He also pioneered work on the brain mechanisms of sound localization by barn owls. His early years, career, and achievements are discussed.
