NHM Member Loan Program: Phainopepla

This phainopepla exhibit from the LA County Natural History Museum is currently on display in our living room. My son asked me, "Why is it called phainopepla?"

Thanks to the placard below the exhibit, I was able to answer him. The name means "shiny robe".

See our first post about the LA County NHM's Member Loan Service for more details.
