Birds galore!

Posted on July 7, 2014 by in The OFI Blog


The late Roxie Colle Laybourne works in a lab Smithsonian’s Division of Birds.

Smithsonian Institution Archives (SIA) Intern, Gabriella Graham, is taking full advantage of her time here at the Smithsonian! Her best experiences thus far have been exploring the archives of the Smithsonian while also visiting the Smithsonian Gardens.

Ironically, Gabriella has enjoyed listening to and watching the birds in the gardens, while also delving into ornithology through her archival research. Through her research she has learned quite a bit about Roxie Collie Laybourne, who was a research associate at Smithsonian’s Division of Birds.

To learn more about Roxie and the birds, check out Gabriella’s recent article on the SIA blog here.
