DMNH’s Bird Collection is worldwide in scope, with special strengths in North and Central America and the Philippines. Approximately 67,000 study skins, 11,000 skeletons, and 2,500 spread wings represent over 4,000 species. The bird egg collection comprises another 36,000 specimens, forming the second largest egg collection in North America. Information about skeleton, wing, and study skin holdings is available online. Requests for information about our egg collection should be sent to Jean Woods, Curator (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The DMNH Mammal Collection contains approximately 6,000 specimens prepared as study skins, skulls, and skeletons. Approximately half were collected in the Philippines in the 1960s and the remainder are from the United States, with a good collection of material from the Delmarva Peninsula. Requests for information about the mammal collection holdings should be sent to Jean Woods, Curator (email@example.com).
