The SNOMNH bird collection was established at the time of origin of the Museum in 1899. While two fires in the Museum (the last in 1918) destroyed the bird collection existing then, the collection subsequently has been developed into one of significant local, regional, and international importance. It is one of the largest in the central United States. Also associated with the bird collection is an extensive library of books and journals.
