I'd like to add that the Slater Museum also has a fantastic wing collection
that, I think, one can still visit in person as well as access photos via
their website. When I was in the Master Birder program several years ago,
I'd visit Slater to study/test myself using the wings. At that time, I was
also allowed to pull out trays and set them on the counters to study up
close. For example, there's nothing like seeing a bunch of thrushes side
by side - Veery, Swainson's, Hermits - because in the field I never saw
them together. Many thanks, Dennis Paulson, for making this happen.

Perhaps Slater folks will provide information if it's still possible to
(and how to) access the specimen collection in person.......
