The link to Audubon's complete work is the most precious thing I have found on this site!! BRAVO to those who put that together and for including it here.

If anyone is interested, I recommend his biography entitled "John James Audubon: the Making of an American" by Richard Rhodes. He truly lived a life beyond belief. This work, Birds of America, is monumental - I do not believe anyone could accomplish the same thing in modern times.
