Most people know America’s most famous bird artist and observer John James Audubon, but few people know Alexander Wilson. Ever wonder why we have birds named after states? Or who painted American birds before Audubon? Wilson’s impact on early American ornithology is striking; he preceded and influenced Audubon almost a decade before John James landed in Pennsylvania and paved the way for the famed artist. A fascinating portrait an individual who named many of the species we know today and who’s lasting impact on American birds continues to this day.
