Funny Birds Video Information:
It takes a big painting to do justice to the phenomenal history and diversity of birds. It also takes an artistic process that is as much about the science as it is about the aesthetics. Get a behind-the-scenes view of how artist Jane Kim brought all 270 species to life on this ambitious natural history mural in this short film narrated by Cornell Lab of Ornithology Director John Fitzpatrick.
To view the mural up close, see this interactive web based version of the mural at https://academy.allaboutbirds.org/features/wallofbirds/
