History Lesson: John James Audubon

On April 26, 1785 John James Audubon was born in Les Cayes in the French colony of Saint-Domingue (now Haiti).  Audubon paved the road for future ornithologists with his amazing art pieces of North American birds.  He would usually portray the birds in motion, as if he had caught them in a moment of feeding or hunting.
