UWBM Ornithology Collection
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).
UWBM data records may be used by individual researchers or research groups, but they may not be repackaged, resold, or redistributed in any form without the express written consent of a curatorial staff member of the UWBM. If any of these records are used in an analysis or report, the provenance of the original data must be acknowledged and the UWBM notified. The Burke Museum and its staff are not responsible for damages, injury or loss due to the use of these data.
