Stop by the Sciences Library to see our new winter exhibit: Colors of Winter.
We normally think of the colors of winter as rather dull and drab, at least until the first snowfall. But the plumage of birds and coats of small mammals often change dramatically during the winter months, allowing them to blend in better with their surroundings.
In our cases, you’ll find birds and other animals in their winter colors, and their summer colors for comparison. Come check it out! And as always, many thanks to the Museum of Natural History for loaning us several specimens from their collections.
