Aus·pex [ˈɔːspɪˌsiːz] -- noun (plural aus·pi·ces)an augur of ancient Rome, that is "one who observes flights of birds for the purpose of taking omens". From Latin: observer of birds, from avis ("bird") and specere ("to look").
The Latin verb is "spicere", not "specere".
Both the dictionary and Wiktionary refer to "specere" as the correct verb.See http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/specere
I did some research and the form "specere" is archaic. "Spicere" is the classic one. So in the end they are both correct :)
