National Geographic “Birds of Paradise” Exhibit To Debut at Traverse City Museum

“Birds of Paradise: Amazing Avian Evolution,” a traveling exhibition from the National Geographic Society, will make its national debut this summer at the Dennos Museum Center in Traverse City, Mich.

In 2004, National Geographic photographer Tim Laman and Cornell University Lab of Ornithology scientist Edwin Scholes began a series of 15 targeted expeditions to document these bizarre birds. Eight years and 37 distinct geographic locations later, they completed the first comprehensive study of all 39 known species of birds-of-paradise.
