Carolina Parakeet will soon disappear from the Gallery, too

John James Audubon's Carolina Parakeet (octavo edition)

Since June, the Carolina Parakeet has graced the North Carolina Collection Gallery with its colorful feathers. (We’ve previously written about the exhibit here and here.)

If you’ve been meaning to visit, now’s your last chance to do so: The exhibit will end on September 30.
