John James AUDUBON
John James Audubon (April 26, 1785, Les Cayes, Saint-Domingue (later Haiti) – January 27, 1851 (aged 65) Manhattan, New York,
U.S.), born Jean-Jacques Audubon, was an American ornithologist, naturalist, and painter. He was notable for his expansive studies
to document all types of American birds and for his detailed illustrations that depicted the birds in their natural habitats. His major
work, a color-plate book entitled The Birds of America (1827–1839), is considered one of the finest ornithological works ever
completed. Audubon identified 25 new species.
