At 2,500 square feet, the Wall of Birds mural at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in Ithica, New York, is an epic work, created by renowned artist Jane Kim over three years. It is the only mural in the world that depicts representatives from all 243 families of modern birds. This book is a tour of the mural and the amazing and beautiful birds it celebrates. And Kim’s reflections tell of the evolutionary forces that created birds’ dazzling variety of forms and colors.
