Birds by Audubon

We're wildly busy but just noticed that today's Google Doodle is an homage to naturalist & painter John James Audubon on his 226th birthday.There's a lovely tribute to Audubon from the online Audubon magazine. Thank you also to National Geographic for an overview on JJ's contributions to the change in humans' appreciation of birds. Giulia is at this moment appreciating birds in the traditional feline manner. Don't worry. For the protection of all, the window screen is secured.
