A Bird’s World

Permanent Exhibit

This exhibit features the Museum’s extraordinary collection of mounted birds, displaying over 300 species found in New England. Interactive components show you how to sharpen your wildlife observation skills and recognize bird behaviors.

Birds naturally detect predators. Their sounds and movements indicate hidden predators lurking around them all the time. Here, you can learn to interpret the bird language taking place just outside your window at home.

Test your sneaking skills and see if you can get past different birds without them alerting other animals to your presence. Learn to identify birds from a distance by recognizing unique flight patterns. Practice your own flying technique in the Bird Walk.
