The small image in the center of Mudie's title page for the first edition of The Feathered Tribes is considered Baxter's first published color print. The image of the Golden Eagle on the left was hand-colored in the traditional manner. Baxter had himself credited for the color printing of his first image in very small type on the title pages of this and the second volume. When the set was reprinted for a second edition in 1835 the images were hand-colored and the credit line was removed.
