Audubon Nature Odysseys is partnering with Victor Emanuel Nature Tours to provide a special itinerary for Audubon members: Birding Across America by Train. From New York’s Adirondack Mountains to the prairies of North Dakota, to Washington’s Olympic Peninsula, this 14-day journey is without a doubt, one of the most remarkable birding adventures we will have ever offered.

A very happy birthday to John James Audubon (1785-1851). This pioneering artist and naturalist produced some of the most indelible images of America’s natural beauty. This, of white gerfalcons, is just one example of his masterful work. Many more gorgeous images can be found here.
