This illustration is unique among all of John James Audubon’s Birds of America, in that he chose to depict the family of House Wrens nesting in an old hat! The composition contains a male House Wren feeding the three juveniles while the female stands perched atop the hat.

The House Wren was painted while Audubon was living in Pennsylvania, from a bird that had nested right outside the window of his house.

The small, grayish brown wren can be seen throughout the United States.

This Princeton Edition was printed on heavy, acid free, museum quality paper using specially designed archival inks. It is a fine art edition strictly limited to 1500 prints. All Princetons are hand numbered and bear an embossed seal in the lower margin of the print.
