Birding at Bergdorf’s

This gives the term “hawking goods” a whole new meaning! If you find yourself walking down Fifth Avenue between 57th and 58th Streets, you might notice some eye-catching windows at Bergdorf Goodman. The current theme of the women’s display windows is birdwatching and there is some lovely art providing support for the rather willowy mannequins. Donna Evans, a long-time and passionate volunteer for NYC Audubon, painted the backdrop murals in two of the five windows, which will be up through the end of July. In Donna’s own words, “They are the biggest things I’ve ever painted, and they are a scribbly love letter to birds and birding.” We think you did a beautiful job Donna!
