This is one after my heart. Were it not for John Audubon am afraid there would be very few bird lithographs to collect! Have been trying to capture a video of a Hummingbird at the feeder for ages but have yet to succeed! By the time I grab the camcorder and get it “ready” the little guy has flown the coop. Speedy little things, are they not! <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

Will keep my eyes open for lithographs of them for you. I believe, but am not sure, that Audubon did some in tin-type…will have to look into that. He was also the first to “band” birds for later identification.

I'll shut up now. <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />
