Tickets for children are the cost of Museum Admission, plus $5 per child. Adults pay Museum Admission with no additional fee.

How do you feed a fledgling? In honor of the New-York Historical Society's special exhibition Feathers: Fashion and the Fight for Wildlife, DiMenna Children’s History Museum is excited to welcome the Wild Bird Fund to teach us all about our neighbors with nests. Participants will watch a presentation about the bird life of New York City and wild bird rehabilitation, then feed a baby bird in the Wild Bird Fund’s care! This program has an age restriction for the safety of the birds that will be handled and fed by children in attendance. Children must be ages five and above in order to feed the birds.

About the Wild Bird Fund
Each year, the Wild Bird Fund, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, provides emergency care for more than 1,000 wild birds and animals in New York City. Working with the Center for Avian and Exotic Medicine—two veterinary hospitals across the street—the Wild Bird Fund is the central resource for wildlife emergency care and rehabilitation in New York City.

Co-presented with the Onassis Cultural Center New York as part of Birds: A Festival Inspired by Aristophanes.
