Information Requests

The Bird Division makes available to researchers and others information about specimens in the collection.  

Our specimen data are maintained in a Specify database and searchable on Vertnet. The digitization of collections data has been supported by the National Science Foundation. All information on species identification, locality, sex, age, date of collection, collector name, measurements, plumage notes, and other associated data, including photos, are available to the public through VertNet.

Requests for further information about specimens should be addressed to the Collection Manager, Janet Hinshaw (jhinshaw@umich.edu), or Curator, Ben Winger (wingerb@umich.edu).
