Audubon Gallery at AMNH now open

The American Museum of Natural History in New York City opened the restored Audubon Gallery last weekend. The first exhibition focuses on mammals -- "The Unknown Audubons: Mammals of North America" -- but no doubt birders who consider themselves naturalists will find it worthwhile.

The collection includes original drawings, paintings and prints by John James Audubon and his sons John Woodhouse Audubon and Victor Gifford Audubon. The exhibition will remain until Jan. 6, 2008, and it coincides with a showing of Audubon's bird paintings at the New-York Historical Society, "Audubon’s Aviary: Natural Selection." The latter will appear until May 20 of this year.

You can see both exhibitions for the price of one. Just show your receipt from one institution to receive a same-day complimentary admission to the other museum through May 20, 2007.
