Birds

The CBC has active avian research projects in the Americas, where Dr. Felicity Arengo is working on flamingo and wetland conservation; and in the Pacific Islands, where Dr. Chris Filardi is studying the fascinating bird diversity found there.

In addition, the Southwestern Research Station is located in one of North America's finest areas for birdwatching. The Museum's own "backyard" of Central Park also sees a diversity of birds, particularly during spring and fall migration. (Click to learn about birds of New York City).
