Today is World Migratory Bird Day. How much do you know about the many birds that live and travel through your neighborhood? Today is a great day to start learning. James John Audubon (1785-1851) was an American ornithologist, naturalist, and painter, who actually tried to paint every bird in North America. His work can be seen in his book Birds of America, a collection of 435 life-size prints! Did you know that Aubudon actually lived nearby? You can visit his home, Mill Grove and hike the trails around it in a small town named after him — Audubon, PA!
Once you’ve learned about J.J., you can learn about North American Birds right here from the Audubon Society, and here’s some Bird Trivia from the California Audubon Society. What a great time to start a lifetime hobby as a BIRDER!
