The pandemic pressed the pause button on a lot of things, but not the Audubon Mural Project.


Over the last year the public art project by The National Audubon Society and Gitler & _ Gallery has continued commissioning artists to paint murals of birds threatened by climate change in naturalist John James Audubon's old uptown neighborhood.


While the public tours are on hiatus due to the pandemic, the murals and their locations are listed alphabetically by bird species on the Audubon website (there's also a printable map that hasn't been updated for a while).
