Dr Bradt is taking care of 70 zebra inches at the Peabody Essex Museum. When they are not building nests mating and eating pelleted diet and seed out of cymbals they are hopping around on electric guitars and making music.
She visits the finches on Tuesdays to make sure they are all doing well. They sweep all over the exhibit hall and have become well acclimated to the 20 visitors allowed in at a time.
Dr Bradt will be in the museum atrium from 10:30 to 11:00 AM on Thursday February 20 to answer questions about the exhibit.
She will also be speaking on Friday February 28 on members night.
