    Alfred M. Bailey, director of the Chicago Academy of Sciences from 1927-1936, was an avid nature photographer in both still and motion picture formats.  Bailey was an ornithologist, so the majority of his images are of birds.  The Academy has a large number of Bailey's photographs in their Archives taken on his trips all over the United States and Canada with the intention of recording a variety of species of birds in their natural habitat.  Here are a few examples from his trips to Louisiana:
