See the newly reopened Birds of the World gallery at Harvard Museum of Natural History which has over 750 specimens from 200 families on display!Boasting over 10,000 species, birds are the most diverse land vertebrates on the planet, surpassing the biological diversity of mammals, reptiles, and amphibians. Thriving in every corner of the globe, from tropical forests to polar ice caps, birds vary tremendously in habit and size from diminutive bee hummingbirds to towering 10-foot-high elephant birds, flightless giants that roamed the African island country of Madagascar until the 17th century. In celebration of these beaked and feathered marvels, the Harvard Museum of Natural History opened the new Birds of the World gallery. On the balcony encircling Great Mammal Hall, this bright, newly-remodeled gallery captures the staggering diversity of birds with many hundreds of stunning specimens representing over 200 different bird families. New exhibit displays reveal the very latest in surprising scientific discoveries about the evolution of these modern dinosaur descendants.
