The Birdcase

Backyard Birds & Beyond includes a display of 86 local and migratory birds plus select bird carvings and other artwork. An interactive digital console features video clips, songs, calls, and “fast facts” for over 30 of the birds. There are also videos of dancer Laura Kathrein moving like a hummingbird and a swan, as part of her iEmbody Animal series!
