John James Audubon in Louisiana
Louisiana Digital Library collection of selected images of "Birds of America" plates (folio and octavo) held in LSU Libraries Special Collections. The birds depicted represent drawings Audubon is known to have made during his stay at Oakley Plantation in 1821, as well as others he may have worked on while there or elsewhere in Louisiana (some later than 1821). This selection of images is connected to the book "A Summer of Birds" by Danny Heitman. See the section "Places in Audubon's Life" in this guide.
