Audubon Day celebrates the legacy of John James Audubon, a pioneer in his field of depicting wildlife in realistic scenes that looked like the audience was watching them living their daily life in their natural habitat.
His book “The Birds of America”, featuring over 400 full color illustrations of almost 500 different species of birds, was considered a unique educational innovation for that time and inspired many people to learn about birds.
