Subject: Bird Specimens Catalogued
With help from Jeremy Chamberlain and Nancy Deckard, all the birds have been catalogued today! That's 160 specimens in 20 boxes. Highlights include: Smew, Bluethroat, Pheasant Coucal, Copper Pheasant, Green Pheasant, Capercaillie, and Himalayan Snowcock. Some of the cool US birds are: Mountain Plover, Snowy Plover, Red-billed Tropicbird, Glossy Ibis, Rock & Willow Ptarmigans, Crested Auklet, Arctic Loon, Boreal Owl, and Mangrove Cuckoo. The collector, Earl T. Newton, had good taste. Next step is to find research and teaching collections that can use them.
