See Birds: Brilliant and Bizarre at the Natural History Museum

The RSPB, in affiliation with the Natural History Museum, has announced a major new exhibition called Birds: Brilliant and Bizarre.

The exhibition showcases the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch and how trends have changed over its history. From the important citizen science data, it shows what the data is telling us and also uncovers secrets of bird life you may not have encountered!

It explores the incredible story of birds – from surviving the mass extinction event that wiped out the dinosaurs, to how they diversified into an incredible 11,000 distinct species, including: House Sparrows, Starlings, and Blue Tits – you may have seen these birds during your Big Garden Birdwatch!

Did you know that Zebra Finches, found in Australia, sing to their unborn young, or Vampire Finches, from the Galapagos, like to feed on blood?
