Australia bound to disturb famed bird-watcher (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

audubon

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'famed bird-watcher' is the definition.
The definition suggests a singular noun which matches the answer.

'australia bound to disturb' is the wordplay.
'australia' becomes 'au'.
'to disturb' is an anagram indicator (I've seen 'disturbing' mean this).
'bound' anagrammed gives 'dubon'.
'au'+'dubon'='AUDUBON'

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for audubon that I've seen before include "Famous bird illustrator", "J. J. -; US bird artist", "John James -, US ornithologist and artist", "Famous illustrator of American birds", "He painted birds".)

I've seen this clue in Sydney Morning Herald.
