Birds

Change the theme

There are almost 10,000 species of birds in the world. All have a beak, feathers and wings, and all lay eggs. With few exceptions, they are able to fly. If you are interested, it is because you have the soul of an ornithologist. Continue your observation by looking at some of the 800 or so species we have in our collections.
