USNM Curators Annual Reports - Department of Birds, 1886 - 1887

About the Project

Would you be able to recognize a Kakapo, or owl parrot, in New Zealand or a Blakiston’s fish owl in Japan? Curator Robert Ridgway recorded the findings of new species of birds that were added to the Department of Birds collections at the United States Natural Museum as part of his report for 1886-1887. Please join us in transcribing Ridgway’s report and learn more about the new species that were added to an impressive collection of birds from around the world.
