To describe a new species of animal stands as one of the major accomplishments of any biologist's life. To describe thirteen new species of birds, as John P. O'Neill has done, is enough to set him apart, but that is only one part of this man's work.
As an artist, John P. O'Neill successfully communicates the beauty of both common and uncommon birds to all who view his paintings. Massachusetts Audubon Society previously named him Artist of the Year. John's work has also appeared in Audubon Magazine, National and International Wildlife, Encyclopedia Britannica, the National Geographic Society Field Guide to the Birds of North America, A Guide to the Birds of Trinidad and Tobago, the Audubon Society Master Guide to Birding and numerous other books, publications and exhibits including the prestigious Leigh Yawkey Woodson"Birds in Art" exhibit.
