Amazonian Birds Expedition

EXPEDITIONS at The Field Museum

Discover what it’s like to be a team member on a Field Museum scientific expedition—without ever leaving home!

Come catalog breathtaking bird life along the banks of Brazil’s remote riverways with Field Museum scientists Drs. John Bates and Jason Weckstein. You’ll discover how their work is redefining diversity in Amazonia and reshaping traditional boundaries of areas targeted for conservation.

Join our Amazonian Birds Expedition and explore the team’s discoveries through their blogs, photos, and videos from the field!
