Aunque tiesos, con la mirada vacía y sin vida, cada uno de los miembros de la colección de aves, que forman parte de la Academia de Ciencias Naturales de la Universidad de Drexel, cuentan con una historia propia.

Este verano nuevos especímenes fueron agregados a la extensa colección, una de las diez más grandes en el mundo.  Ésta cuenta con una familia de  más de 200.000 ejemplares que representan unas 7.000 especies.
