Looking for awesome high-res pictures of certain birds...

Including:

- White-tailed Tropicbird (known locally in Bermuda as a Longtail) in flight

- House Wren in flight

- Falcon (s) in flight

Also, trying to find high res images of John James Audubon work of the above. Mainly searching for all of these things as base image ideas for tattoos.

Plus, if anyone knows of a good one, searching for a database on bird symbolism. Not one of those common websites that list maybe one or two meanings per bird, but rather one that lists both good and bad symbolism of a crow (messenger, death, etc) for example.

Thanks for any help you can give, Hive-mind!
