Bird Head Drawings, Box 39

About the Project

If you are interested in bird-watching, you will appreciate the work ornithologists have put in to creating systematic standards for naming species, colors and defining color nomenclature. These drawings from ornithologist Robert Ridgway's personal papers are part of his pioneering work in that effort at the turn of the twentieth century. His color studies and systematic approach for naming species has influenced zoology both in North America and internationally.

Fellow volunteers have transcribed the annotations on over 700 of Ridgway's drawings! Help us transcribe this box of drawings using the special instructions under READ MORE.
