The bird of the day, and a preview of birds the next couple of page-turnings will reveal, can be seen on the museum’s website. Visitors can see it in person as part of the price of general admission, which is $12 for adults and $10 for children.

“There are only about 60 institutions in the nation that have the original edition of `The Birds of America,’” said Clare Flemming, an archivist at the museum. “I don’t know of any other place that turns the page for the public every weekday.”
