The museum's ornithological collection includes skins, skulls, mounted specimens, egg sets, and nests. Much of the collection dates to the early 1900s. Catalog records of the approximately 3,500 skins and mounts have recently been transcribed and databased. Plans call for placing this searchable data online.
