Rare Birds at the Redpath


David Lank, a lecturer in the Faculty of Management and an ornithology aficionado, and McGill Biology professor Graham Bell, Director of the Redpath Museum, were on hand for the Museum's opening of "Rare Birds: Treasures from the Blacker-Wood Library," an exhibition of bird art featuring pieces selected from the Library's collection of drawings, prints and books. Treasures on display included the exquisite "feather book" of Dionisio Minaggio dating from 1618, in which the images are constructed of undyed feathers.
