Jennifer Hammer told a sad story about finding a dead barn owl at
Magnuson Park. She was unsure what she should do about the corpse.

You can deliver a dead bird to either the Burke Museum on the University
of Washington campus in Seattle or to the Slater Museum at the
University of Puget Sound in Tacoma. However, it may be that things have
changed temporarily during the pandemic, so you should contact them first.

The Burke welcomes contributions and provides some information online
about why and how to contribute a dead bird:


The Slater Museum also welcomes contributions and also provides
information online about contributing a dead bird:


I'm not an expert by any means, but I've always put the bird into a
plastic bag and put the bag into our freezer while waiting to deliver it
to the museum.  My understanding is that it is illegal to keep a corpse
or bird part for your own use.
