Provides information on the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology in Ithaca, New York. People have regarded birds as mysterious and powerful, as symbols of freedom, wisdom, war and peace. Since its founding in 1915, the laboratory has steadily built a reputation as a premiere global center for bird study. In June 2003, vastly expanded main building, the Imogene Powers Johnson Center for Birds and Biodiversity, replaced the former Stuart Observatory as the laboratory's headquarters.
