Meet Michael Anderson, who is sculpting a series of rare or unusual bird species to complete the Connecticut Bird Hall at the Peabody. Watch him craft incredibly lifelike bird models for two minutes and 40 seconds—the exact length of your attention span—and thank me later. Face it, that’s the closest you were gonna get to actually going on that bird walk thing anyway.
And you can even let this video make you feel better about your unbelievable sloth—instead of using real taxidermy, the Peabody’s using realistic sculptures. Instead of actually going up Science Hill, you can watch it on YouTube. It kind of works, anyway.
