Can you identify what type of bird you’re seeing just by the way it flies? The surprising answer is… yes! Birds’ wings differ greatly in size, shape, and number of feathers, and paying attention to these details can tell us so much about the birds we see. National Aviary Ornithologist Bob Mulvihill will introduce you to the evolution and mechanics of avian flight. Learn about the relationship between wing shape and flight behaviors, and observe the flight styles and strategies used by birds in the National Aviary.
