The Smithsonian Magazine for September - October 2023 has an article Bird by Bird by Jennie Rothenberg Gritz in which "America's best wildlife photographers zoom in on their favorite feather creatures." Her introduction to the photographs will add to your enjoyment of this great article.

I don't know whether there are plans that it will ever become an exhibit - there are probably not  enough images - but I'm glad it is on an exclusive exhibit for us. The range maps are from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology; ResearchGate.net' ; and Washington Dept. of Fish and Wildlife. 

The text is dissected as displayed but persevere for it is worth reading and will add to your enjoyment. These images show me what it means to be labeled a "top photographer" for these shooters are at the top of their game.
All of the birds are my favorites as are all of the images. And there is much to discover in them -inferences about habitat, behavior, adaptations, etc.
