I can see some of the birdwatchers among my readers spending a lot of time in this particular gallery. More of the displays today.
There are three dioramas set up with different species in different parts of the country. A broad-winged hawk is perched along a shoreline of the Great Lakes.
A diorama set in Saskatchewan includes greater sage grouse, with the male showing off.
And this one is set in the far west, featuring three different species.
I know so little about birds and there are so many different types of birds in the world.ReplyDelete
I'd be one of those lingering there. There was a very fine collection of the taxidermists art at Woollaton Hall, just over the road from where I attended Nottingham University - if I'd spent as much time in the University's library then life might have turned out differently.ReplyDelete
I don't know much about birds except that some of them are very cute, because I always had cats and the two don't go well together !ReplyDelete
When COVIDis over and we can get to Ottawa again it will be time for a return visit to the museum.ReplyDelete
Yes, I would love spending time at this exhibit. I do love all the birds.
Take care, enjoy your day and happy new week ahead!
