Thanks to his dutiful bird-watching, John James Audubon single-handedly shut down numerous avian uprisings throughout the 19th century, including the famed Sparrow Subversion of 1843 and the other War of 1812. Discover further bits of winged wisdom with today's Groupon to Wing Haven Gardens & Bird Sanctuary. Created by Elizabeth and Edwin Clarkson in 1927, Wing Haven Gardens & Bird Sanctuary has since spawned into three acres of Southern vistas, formal gardens, and woodland areas. The gardens' overall purpose is to provide cover, nesting sites, food, cable TV, and water for birds and other wildlife. Ornithologists and casual avian-enthusiasts can regularly catch glimpses of birds such as robins, orioles, woodpeckers, Eastern bluebirds, cardinals and more.
