Arizona State University Ornithology Collection (ASU-ASUORC)

The Bird Collection is made up of museum skins and a few taxidermy-mounted specimens. It consists of around 500 registered specimens; additional specimens await registration. A teaching collection is housed separately. The bulk of the specimens are from Arizona, with some Neotropical representation as well. The specimen catalog of birds is on paper, though an electronic database is in development.
