John James Audubon (1785-1851) had a dream of drawing each American bird in “its natural size and colouring.” In “The Birds of America,” Audubon captured 1,065 individual birds on 435 hand-colored plates. The John James Audubon stamp is the 2002 addition to the American Treasures Series that was introduced in 2001.
