I love the way Google marks certain days with a pictorial header or decorated title.
Today is one such day.

I was immediately reminded of a Bell-pull that I made in cross stitch and featured in one of my craft posts some time ago.

I needed to use the search engine to discover the reason for the piece above
It is in Celebration of the 226th Birthday of John James Audubon

John James Audubon (April 26, 1785 – January 27, 1851) was a French-American ornithologist, naturalist, hunter, and painter. He painted, catalogued, and described the birds of North America in a manner far superior to what had gone before. In his embrace of America and his outsized personality and achievements, he represented the new American people of the United States.

Now I am off to see if I can find some Irish birds!
