Project Description

Dinosaurs are a perfect fit with the Museum’s extensive collection of birds, given the current theory that modern birds evolved from theropod dinosaurs. The Museum houses 113,000 bird specimens and nests in its behind-the-scenes Collections and Research Division, many of which are on permanent display for visitors. Guests can view an extinct Passenger Pigeon, 3-D dioramas, and compare the large Elephant Bird egg to that of the tiny Hummingbird.
