BIRDS OF THE WORLD

Now on view
Boasting over 10,000 species, birds are the most diverse land vertebrates on the planet. In celebration of these beaked and feathered marvels, the museum will open the new Birds of the World gallery. On the balcony encircling the Great Mammal Hall, this bright, newly remodeled gallery features many hundreds of stunning specimens, representing over 200 different bird families. New exhibit displays reveal the very latest in scientific discoveries about the evolution of these modern dinosaurs.
