Cliffs with nesting birds at new nature exhibition in Reykjavik.

Taxidermied birds have now been placed on cliffs in a replica of Látrabjarg in the West Fjords, one of Europe's biggest bird cliffs, inside the Pearl in Reykjavik.

The cliffs form part of a new nature exhibition at the Pearl, a building in central Reykjavik located on top of the city's hot water tanks that features a revolving restaurant on the top floor.
