Our Feathered Planet

Today, September 13, 2016, the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology announced a new online experience from Google, the Cornell Lab of  Ornithology, and more than 1000 other partner institutons. These are collections of natural history, all available in one place--interactive, dynamic and immersive.

Our Feathered Planet, the natural history of birds, in this series, is from the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology. It is the one I want to highlight. It features a large-scale mural by artist Jane Kim.

"The mural's 3000 square feet depict the diversity and evolution of birds. Each bird represents and existing bird family and is shown in its home range on a world map in life-sized detail."
