Ornithology is a branch of zoology that concerns the study of birds. This science has a long history and studies on birds have helped develop several key concepts in evolution, behavior and ecology.

The study of ornithology has also provided insights into instinct, learning, ecological niches, guilds, island biogeography, phylogeography and conservation, among others.

In this post you’ll find 15 beautiful ornithology illustrations created by a few of the Medical Illustration Sourcebook artists. If you’d like to explore more specialties and topics, please head over to our Specialty Search.
