Gallery Renovation of Birds of New York

The gallery renovation project, completed in 2020, ushered Birds of New York into a new era, with upgraded lighting, realistic backgrounds, and taxidermy bird mounts that have been cleaned or replaced. See how the entire hall has been completely re-interpreted with new maps, photos, and updated information about bird ecology and evolution and conservation
