Science Collection
The Birds Collection is divided into two categories, study skins, and fully mounted specimens.  The study skins are the older of the two collections, and many dates to the late nineteenth century.  The fully mounted specimens were largely created as part of the Museum's old School Loan Collection during the twentieth century, and consist of fully taxidermied specimens in small diorama carrying cases.  The majority of the specimens in this collection are of local birds, but there are a few from other areas.
