Audubon, come forth!
A review of US postage stamps showing Audubon´s portrait.
Audubon was a famous American painter of birds. Unfortunately, he was also a rather trigger-happy hunter of same birds.

Don't count on it, though. Knowing this guy, he'd probably start shooting the purple martins first of all! After all, they look better in a scrapbook…
