John Gould, the Bird Man, was the enterprising genius behind the creation of 2999 different hand-colored lithographic plates of birds and animals. He was born on September 14, 1804. In his pursuit of new and different birds, John Gould traveled to Asia, Australia and the East Indies. One of its major sponsors was the Royal Australasian Ornithologists Union, also known as Birds Australia.
