Karl Shuker on a Bird Hunt

Posted by: Nick Redfern on August 4th, 2012

Dr. Karl Shuker goes on the hunt for mysterious, unidentified birds:

“Even though celebrated American naturalist-artist John James Audubon (1785-1851) produced some of the most spectacular paintings of North American wildlife ever created, he has also stirred up a degree of controversy among ornithologists, because his artwork includes depictions of certain birds that cannot be identified with any species known to present-day science. Most of these feathered mysteries are small, relatively nondescript perching birds, but there is one big (indeed, very big) exception – Washington’s eagle.”

This is a very cool, and huge, post!
