Audubon painted this hoopoe in 1805, just two years after emigrating from France at the age of eighteen. It was discovered in the 1990s at the Muséum d’Histoire Naturelle in La Rochelle, France.    In it, Audubon is not yet working with watercolor, but experimenting with graphite and pastels. "He chose pastel at the beginning. They were out of favor at the time, but he liked the fact that it had the texture of feathers," Olson said.
