Birds

Ornithology is the study of birds. The collection is comprised of study skins, mounts, eggs, and nests totaling approximately 1300 catalogued specimens and associated data. Specimens have been donated or collected by private individuals, Idaho Fish and Game, U. S. Fish and Wildlife and researchers.

A large collection of mounted specimens and skins was donated to IMNH by Mr. Richard (Dick) Jeppson. Dick was a local high school teacher and taxidermist, who also provided service in a variety of ways to the museum.

This collection is a resource for exhibits, museum and university classes, local science teachers, wood carvers and artists. In addition, this collection provides a unique window to examine the changes in avian populations and their habitats in Idaho and the Intermountain West.
