Fowl-Like Birds Displayed in Darwin Museum

The Darwin Museum in Moscow is opening the exhibition From Firebird to Speckled Hen on July 23.

      The exposition will present the best exhibits from the richest (nearly 1500 copies) museum collection of fowl-like birds. Lots of them are the world’s most beautiful birds, such as peacocks, tragopans, monal pheasants, and numerous species of pheasants, whose names speak for themselves: royal, silver, gold, and diamond. The collection of aberrations (deviations from norm) of black grouses in the Darwin Museum is the largest one in the world – a part of it will be shown at the exhibition, as well as various breeds of house hens, some of which are considered extinct species. Paintings, graphic art, and unique rare books of the 16th -19th centuries will help visitors have a new picture of this group of birds.

      The exhibition will run till October 6.
