Story: Audubon & Peterson - (1985) - Like the famous ornithologists for whom they are named, these two Woodspirits are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the first Carolina chickadee of the spring. Paterson is giving an expert bird call and Audubon is going to use his binoculars for close observation. But even the best bird watchers can't get up soon enough to catch the early bird! The chickadee, unknown to them, has already arrived and is enjoying the bird seed right behind them. The Norwegian coin depicts a small bird.
