From earliest times, people have been fascinated by how birds fly. Seattle’s Museum of Flight is presenting a special exhibit on the “mechanics” of flight (bird anatomy) and the inspiration which birds have given to man’s efforts to become airborne. The How Birds Fly exhibit is at the Museum of Flight now through September 4, 2015. Check the museum website for open hours, parking info and admission prices.
How Birds Fly is presented in partnership with the Burke Museum and a bird photographer, Dr. Peter Cavanaugh of the University of Washington in Seattle. The photographs of birds in flight are alongside anatomy which highlights “how they do it,” and placed in the exhibit together with man’s best efforts at imitation of bird flight via mechanical means.
God created the birds, and we can admire and enjoy His creation along with the assurance that those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength; they will soar on wings like eagles (Isaiah 40:31.)
