The Art of Bird Taxidermy | Natural History Museum

May 4, 2017

Watch Senior Curator Hein van Grouw as he prepares a corncrake (Crex crex) specimen for the Museum’s bird collections. The art of taxidermy has become fashionable again in recent years. But it has always been scientifically useful, as Hein explains.

This comes from the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. If no film or link appears in this email, go to the blog to view it by clicking on the blog title above. If the film stops & starts in an annoying manner, press pause (lower left double bars ||) to let it buffer and get ahead of you.  [Chuck Almdale]
