Audubon’s Birthday

April 27th, 2006 by Gabe Harrell

On April 26, 1785, John James Audubon was born on the island of Hispaniola in what is now Haiti. You can offer best birthday wishes and enjoy a handful of his works — including two “elephant folio” prints from Birds of America, plus an original drawing and one print from the octavo edition — currently on display on the second floor of Hill Memorial Library.
