Bird Collection in the AUMNH

Auburn has a modest collection of 3000 bird skins primarily collected in the mid-twentieth century in Alabama. Most species that occur in the state are represented in the collection.  No skins of type specimens or extinct species are housed in the bird collection.   

The tissue collection hold about 2000 frozen blood samples of birds captured during breeding seasons in Lee, Macon, and Mobile Counties in AL.  

Loan requests are welcome. Loans of specimens are made to scientists and students associated with recognized institutions or to others with adequate credentials.
