Tim Laman, a renowned photographer and forest canopy researcher, and ornithologist Ed Scholes, authors of the major National Geographic book, Birds of Paradise Revealed, will take visitors deep into New Guinea to observe these astonishing avian creatures. Evolved to attract mates with their extraordinarily colorful feathers, which they display in dances executed with ballerina-like grace, these birds are a living laboratory of evolution. Meet all 39 species and enjoy their secret lives, bizarre displays, and dazzling courtship antics in breathtaking visuals. Birds of Paradise Revealed is the first event in the inaugural, three-part Nat Geo Live speaker series taking place at the Toledo Museum of Art in 2019. A variety of discounts are available for Museum members, seniors, students, military, and children. Additional savings are available when you purchase tickets for the entire series.
