      Avian Coloration: An Art and Science Workshop

      The Harvard Museum of Natural History invites you to explore and consider the bird. The world of birds is full of diverse feather colors that combine to form amazing plumage patterns-- from neon yellow to somber black. How and why do birds achieve these decorative feats? Beginning with a microscopic look at feathers and expanding out to a broad perspective of patterns across bird families, Harvard University graduate student Dakota McCoy will use feather and bird specimens from the University's collections to explore how and why this diversity of forms arose. Artist Erica Beade will show participants how to capture the nuance of avian color and form in their drawings. Don't miss this special union of art and science!
