Google Doodle 26th April

After the disappointment of no Easter Monday Google Doodle yesterday, we get a stunning Doodle today, celebrating the birthday of none other than - yes you’ve guessed it - (it was obvious when you think about it!) - John James Audubon !

Google Doodle 26th April 2011

You know; Big Jocky Audubon - the bird bloke? No? I’m surprised you haven’t heard of him - we talk about him all the time in our house! For the uninitiated, here’s what Wikipedia say about the April 26th recipient of the Google Doodle: John James Audubon (April 26, 1785 - January 27, 1851) was a French-American ornithologist, naturalist, hunter, and painter.¬†Audubon 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.

I realise I’m being flippant, but I guess the fact that I’ve never heard of him, doesn’t mean that he’s not worthy of a Google Doodle and I quite enjoyed investigating Audubon’s life.

The Doodle itself is visually attractive, but no matter how I squint at it or look at it standing on my head, I can’t see how it says, “Google” though!
