Audubon's Owls Live HD+ Wallpaper Gallery

Theme your NOOK with this collection of 40+ restored ultra high-def images from Audubon's Birds of America.

John James Audubon determined to paint every bird in North America. In the 1820's he began this goal by securing financial backing, and from 1827 to 1838 published the prints in sets of five.

This live wallpaper gallery contains images from the eleven plates depicting owls. The various image sets all begin with the original full Audubon plate.

You can browse the settings page that gives the full historical title of the plate, and often gives the name of the plants, reptiles and insects also present in the image.

The original plates were produced on an ivory paper, that in many cases has darkened significantly over time. With these restored images, you can apply a number of tints to theme your display with your favorite color scheme. The tinting effect works best with lighter tints, but a reverse tinting effect is present that works best with darker tints.

This collection depicts the following owls:
1. Snowy Owl
2. Barn Owl
3. Little Owl
4. Great Cinereous Owl
5. Hawk Owl
6. Tengmalm's Owl
7. Long-eared Owl
8. Burrowing Owl
9. Large-headed Burrowing Owl
10. Little night Owl
11. Columbian Owl
12. Short-eared Owl
13. Barred Owl
14. Great Horned Owl
15. Little Screech Owl

Additional features of the live wallpaper:
- Explore images as you change your NOOK screens left and right
- Manually change images with an up/down gesture
- Timer settings to change images automatically (every 30 minutes, every day, etc.)
- Individually adjust the display (brightness, contrast, saturation) of each image
- Enable/disable individual images for display
- Apply tints to individual or all images to further customize your display
- Apply reverse tint and screen effect individually or to all images

    Disappointing

    I would like actual pictures, not drawings.

    It's Hedwig!!! Set it to snowy owls and you can theme your nook

    It's Hedwig!!! Set it to snowy owls and you can theme your nook to Harry Potter. Some of the other owls are great for a birdy halloween theme too.

    Not recommended as backgrounds

    The background color is too light making it hard to differentiate apps from what is behind them. The pictures are beautiful but a better background color scheme would enhance it. I was disappointed as I have many of the Audubon apps and enjoy learning about birds and butterflies and mammals and fish.
