On March 22, in Gorky Park in Moscow, opened a photo exhibition of the Russian Geographical Society "Winged Neighbors", dedicated to the birds that live in Russia. The exhibition is timed to coincide with the International Bird Day – April 1.
The open-air exhibition presents the works of the participants of the annual photo competition of the RGS "The Most Beautiful Country" in the category "Birds". The amazing images, selected from tens of thousands submissions, are taken by bird watchers, professional photographers and nature lovers. Each photo is provided with information about the birds depicted in it.
The visitors to the exhibition will learn where the hoopoe and the mandarin duck nest, which bird is very aggressive and prefers to hide its food to store it, how the tufted puffin flies and what cry the common curlew has. The exhibition will tell you which species are listed in the Red Book of the Russian Federation and are on the verge of extinction, and which, on the contrary, are increasing their population.
The exhibition is called "Winged Neighbors" for a reason – birds surround us everywhere: more than 200 species of birds live in Moscow alone. We invite you to visit the exhibition of the Russian Geographical Society and learn a lot of new and interesting things about our "winged neighbors".
The exhibition is located next to the central gate of Gorky Park and runs until April 20, 2021.
