Hitnes traveled in the footsteps of John James Audubon tracing his every move in search of his birds. His first visit in America was where it all started for Audubon; at Mill Grove. He toured, photographed and canoed the grounds to embrace and begin his journey in the same way as the famous artist and ornithologist.
