Birds abound in the arts of the ancient Americas. Soaring falcons, fish-eating sea birds, hovering hummingbirds, and brilliantly colored parrots captured the imagination of peoples from Mesoamerica to the Andes.

This section of the exhibition features objects from the Dumbarton Oaks Byzantine and Pre-Columbian Collections.
