American Flamingo, plate 431
Roseate Spoonbill, plate 321

The Birds of America is a book by naturalist and painter John James Audubon, containing illustrations of a wide variety of birds of the United States. It was first published as a series in sections between 1827 and 1838, in Edinburgh and London. The work consists of 435 beautiful, hand-coloured, life-size prints, made from engraved plates, measuring around 99 by 66 cm.

All these 435 illustrations from J. J. Audubon’s ‘Birds of America’ are available now for free download. My favorite is the one with the huge pink flamingo.
