At the BONNI BENRUBI GALLERY, the bulky dodo bird, extinct since the 17th century, seems to be alive and well, at least as caught by the lens of the Finnish photographer HARRI KALLIO in its native habitat, the tropical island of Mauritius. His accurately reconstructed models - with their huge hooked bills, short legs and necks and rudimentary wings - frequent mountaintops, valleys and dense woodlands, blissfully undisturbed by the invasion of humans and imported animals like the hog that apparently led to their demise. 41 East 57th Street, Manhattan, (212) 888-6007, through April 1.
