Vincent A. Heig Ornithology Collection

The Bird Collection is maintained by Dr. Chris Yahnke with the assistance of student employees.

It currently contains about 2,000 specimens mainly from the United States.  These specimens have been prepared as study skins, bones, and mounts.

This photo of a Red-bellied Woodpecker (Centurus carolinus) was donated by Gerard Fuehrer at Nature Visions Photography.
