UWBM Ornithology Collection

Latest version published by University of Washington Burke Museum on Dec 22, 2016 University of Washington Burke Museum

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).

Geographic Coverage

We maintain a comprehensive collection of birds from the Pacific Northwest, North America, and many other parts of the world including unsurpassed modern collections from many localities throughout the former Soviet Union and Mongolia, samples from transects crossing major Australian biogeographic divides, and major new bird collections from the Solomon Islands.

Bounding Coordinates South West [-90, -180], North East [90, 180]

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.
