The best way to learn about birds is to watch them. The Canadian Museum of Nature developed a travelling exhibition to help people do just that!

Our Feathered Friends introduces visitors to the basics of birdwatching including how to identify birds and how to attract them into backyards. This participatory exhibition includes a programming cart with mounted birds, books, puppets and activity sheets as well as instructions for presenting workshops and demonstrations for visitors and school groups.
