Feathers

Like other animals, birds can shift colours seasonally. A display case here shows examples.


Thematically speaking the display moves on to similar colours in different sized birds.


There's something unusual to be found here, a partial albino. Lifting the lid gives the name of the species.


And here it is.

  8. I love that they have the interactive parts, too. They really explain it all so well. There are some birds that are so hard to identify from the bird book -- especially when you don't know where to start. Seeing them like this makes it easy. (This would be Lizzie's favorite exhibit!)
