Yep, that’s a Prothonotary Warbler. With your Audubon dress you’ll be able to name all the birds. Though I wouldn’t go bird watching in it, you’d just get all mussed. (While birding seems theoretically fun, it involves getting up hideously early, crawling around in the bracken and whatnot—feh. I can’t even get up early to go to the flea market. I’m often late to brunch at 2PM.) So why bother with the experience when you’ve got a novelty print that’s the perfect simulation?
There are so many things to like about this print. Not only are the birds beautifully rendered, but the foliage is well-done too. And there appear to be other surreal little scenes like this one with the painting of the bird’s egg. Doesn’t that look like something of a heraldic shield or family crest, especially with the Latin name of the bird written above? Since this print includes Latin, it’s even more fabulous.

If it weren’t so small, it would be on my back right now, cold snap be damned. (B36, W26). Please go get this dress. The current bid is a mere $24.
