While wandering West Harlem, murals of birds will begin to catch your eye. The more you explore, the more you’ll spot storefronts and apartment buildings decorated with these colorful depictions of various avian species.
In a fairly concentrated area, there are 88 paintings to be found, but this is just the beginning. An ambitious project engineered by the National Audubon Society aims to complete 314 in total, with each one representing a North American species threatened by climate change.
