Summary

Full Title

UWBM Ornithology Collection

Description

The ornithological collections at the Burke Museum are relatively modern, with more than 85% of the collection built in the past 20 years. These bird specimens are used for teaching, research, and art. We are particularly known for our special collections such as spread wings (the largest such collection in the world) and bird tissues (probably the world's second largest collection).

Taxonomic Coverage

Specific research projects began driving Ornithology collecting programs by the mid-1980s. These special research collections now include: an extensive series of hybrid warblers, a large series of North Pacific seabirds, a series of most of the pipits of the world, a superb series of most of the grouse of the world, and late-summer samples of various western North American birds that depend on the Mexican Monsoon for their fall molt.
