John James Audubon byl francouzsko-americký ornitolog, přírodovědec a malíř.

Audubon se narodil na Haiti a v roce 1803 imigroval do Spojených států, kde pobýval až do své smrti. Za svůj život objevil a popsal celkem 25 nových druhů a 12 poddruhů. Byl také členem Linné společnosti a Královské společnosti v Edinburghu a Londýně. Jeho dílo Birds of America z let 1840–1844 bývá dodnes považováno za jednu z nejvýznamnějších ornitologických prací a obsahuje na 497 obrazů a přes 700 popisů severoamerických ptačích druhů. Audubona třikrát citoval např. i Charles Darwin ve své knize O původu druhů.

Citáty John James Audubon

„Thank God it has rained all day.“

—  John James Audubon
Context: Thank God it has rained all day. I say thank God, though rain is no rarity, because it is the duty of every man to be thankful for whatever happens by the will of the Omnipotent Creator; yet it was not so agreeable to any of my party as a fine day would have been. Ch. XXIX, p. 348

„I cannot write at all, but if I could how could I make a little book, when I have seen enough to make a dozen large books?“

—  John James Audubon
Context: I cannot write at all, but if I could how could I make a little book, when I have seen enough to make a dozen large books? I will not write at all. Journal entry in Audubon and His Journals (1897), edited by Maria R. Audubon, Vol. I, "The European Journals 1826 - 1829", p. 184

„I presume the love of the mothers for their young is much the same as the love of woman for her offspring. There is but one kind of love; God is love, and all his creatures derive theirs from his; only it is modified by the different degrees of intelligence in different beings and creatures.“

—  John James Audubon
Context: Captain Hall expressed some doubts as to my views respecting the affection and love of pigeons, as if I made it human, and raised the possessors quite above the brutes. I presume the love of the mothers for their young is much the same as the love of woman for her offspring. There is but one kind of love; God is love, and all his creatures derive theirs from his; only it is modified by the different degrees of intelligence in different beings and creatures. Ch. X, p. 139

„A true conservationist is a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children.“

—  John James Audubon
Sometimes attributed to Audubon in recent years, there are no occurrences of this statement that have been located prior to 1997, and it is probably derived from the remarks of Wendell Berry:

„Hunting, fishing, drawing, and music occupied my every moment; cares I knew not, and cared naught about them. I purchased excellent and beautiful horses, visited all such neighbors as I found congenial spirits, and was as happy as happy could be.“

—  John James Audubon
