If it ran, walked, crept, crawled, swam or flew, it is found on a cigar label. Every type and color of bird sold cigars at one time or another.  This exhibit is a selection from the NCM collection. More eagles can be seen in the Patriotic exhibit; more barnyard birds in the Barnyard exhibit. Wild and Domestic animals are found elsewhere as are creatures of the sea.

        It’s fitting to begin a display of flying critters with the two most popular  cigar brands featuring birds.
