John James Audubon (1785 - 1851) was an American naturalist and scientific illustrator, who is best known for his highly influential book The Birds of America, which is renowned for its visually stunning illustrations. The Birds of America contains over 400 engraved plates showing a wide range of North American bird species, including some now extinct. These pictures are perfect for any Sim who loves some vintage charm, or is a scientist at heart!

Yes, three years after my set of Owls from The Birds of America, I have dusted off my project files and I'm back with a new set. This one features 20 presets showing different passerines (perching birds), mostly species in the medium-to-large scale of the group. The species included in this set, in order of the presets, are:

  • Common raven (Corvus corax)
  • Western tanager (Piranga ludoviciana) and Scarlet tanager (Piranga olivacea)
  • American robin (Turdus migratorius)
  • Baltimore oriole (Icterus galbula)

  • Barn swallow (Hirundo rustica)
  • Blue jay (Cyanocitta cristata)
  • Grey jay (Perisoreus canadensis)
  • Black-throated magpie-jay (Calocitta colliei)

  • Brown Thrasher (Toxostoma rufum)
  • Loggerhead shrike (Lanius ludovicianus)
  • Fork-tailed flycatcher (Tyrannus savana)
  • Hermit thrush (Catharus guttatus)

  • Yellow-billed magpie (Pica nutalli), Steller's jay (Cyanocitta stelleri), California scrub jay (Aphelocoma californica) & Clark's nutcracker (Nucifraga columbiana) (1 plate)
  • Mangrove cuckoo (Coccyzus minor)
  • Sage thrasher (Oreoscoptes montanus) & Varied thrush (Ixoreus naevius) (1 plate)
  • Bullock's oriole (Icterus bullockii), Baltimore oriole (Icterus galbula), Varied thrush (Ixoreus naevius) & Northern waterthrush (Parkesia noveboracensis) (1 plate)

And the final set are:
  • Red-winged blackbird (Agelaius phoeniceus)
  • Northern cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis)
  • Florida scrub jay (Aphelocoma coerulescens)
  • Black-billed magpie (Pica hudsonia)
