Another day, another Google doodle — today’s doodle is honoring the 226th birthday of John James Audubon.
“John James Audubon (Jean-Jacques Audubon) (April 26, 1785 — January 27, 1851) was a French-American ornithologist, naturalist, hunter, and painter. He painted, catalogued, and described the birds of North America in a manner far superior to any before him.”
Audubon, of course, was a nature-lover who focused on studying and painting/chronicling birds all across North America. In 1905, more than 50 years after his death, the National Audubon Society formed in his honor.
Today’s Google logo doesn’t sport the interactive elements that some recent ones have had, but it’s certainly true to Audubon’s painting style.
