Sorry Boca. We’re taking a family journey to a different sort of paradise this summer. Join us in New Guinea by way of the “Birds of Paradise: Amazing Avian Evolution” exhibit, a National Geographic traveling exhibition opening this weekend (May 27) at the Museum of Discovery and Science (MODS). Birds of Paradise reveals all 39 species of these elusive birds for the first time, highlighting the groundbreaking research of photographer Tim Laman and Cornell Lab of Ornithology scientist Edwin Scholes. Birds of Paradise features the extravagant plumage, crazy courtship dances and bizarre behaviors of these extraordinary birds. Equal parts natural history, photography and science exhibition, it gives visitors an in-depth look at the lives of birds-of-paradise. Visitors will be greeted with natural soundscapes, traditional wood carvings and a montage of all birds-of-paradise species. They can learn brand new information about each of the 39 species, all photographed for the first time in history.
