1972 - present
The Hall of New York City Birds at the American Museum of Natural History showcases the diversity of birds in the greater New York area with over 300 specimens. The collection was exhibited in two different iterations prior to the opening of the Hall of New York City Birds. First as Local Birds from 1894-1936 and as part of the New York State Exhibits from 1936-1971, which, in addition to birds, included geology and minerals; invertebrates, butterflies, moths, and insects; amphibians and reptiles; and mammals of New York State. The Hall of New York City Birds adjoins the Hall of New York State Mammals, which collection was also part of the New York State Exhibits.
