Scott Barchard Wilson (1865 - 1923) was a British ornithologist and explorer.

Wilson was the son of the chemist George Fergusson Wilson.[1] In 1887, he was sent by his professor Alfred Newton to study and collect birds in Hawaii. On his return he wrote Aves Hawaiienses (1890-1899) with Arthur Humble Evans, illustrated by Frederick William Frohawk.
