John James Audubon (1785-1851) was a daring and colorful character renowned for his adventurous nature, artistic genius, and obsessive interest in birds. He traveled the United States in search of his winged subjects, painting almost five hundred regularly occurring North American bird species – including the Reddish Egret, rarest of the North American herons. This thoughtfully conceived and engagingly intricate jigsaw puzzle combines superb color reproduction and sturdy construction to delight generations of novice and veteran puzzle solvers.
