My 9 year-old granddaughter hopes to become an ornithologist. She looks at the magazine every month with me. This book would be a treasure for her.

Great book!

How beautiful! And how interesting it would be to learn the story behind the paintings. Usually one considers them in isolation.

Audubon Contest

I've commented before but I don't see my comment. So I'll give it another go. I would very much love to win this book. I love Audubon's artistry and I love the beauty and grace of the birds. I've started birding in November 2010 when I saw a Peregrine Falcon resting in a small tree in the city of Milwaukee, WI. He was striking, regal, and absolutely gorgeous. This book would be a wonderful addition to my personal library. I hope I win. Good luck to everyone else as well.

Contest Submission

Gorgeous book. I love birds and Audubon's artistry. I started birding since November 2010 when I saw a Peregrine Falcon resting in a small tree in Milwaukee, WI. I admired his bravery and his striking beauty. As a true predator, he was unphased by my presence. He just sat regal on a low hanging branch, surveying the houses and buildings around him. I would very much love this book. Hope I win.

Pretty book!

Pretty book!

I'd love to have this book!

Audubon didn't just illustrate a bird -- he breathed life into it, capturing its personality.

Book Giveaway

I would love to have this book in my collection. I work with families doing nature study and appreciation and this would be a valuable asset. I collect books of this type.

Biology student

As a biology major I would love this book. I have really developed a fascination with birds while in school and hope to go into conservation. I see the picture of a Carolina Parakeet, which we recently learned about in conservation biology. It is a shame I wont get to see one in the wild as a resident of South Carolina, but this book is the next best thing!
