Museu Carlos Machado - Azores gov
For any ornithological matter concerning the museum, please contact Conservador João Paulo A. S. Medeiros Constância.
There are two lists at the museum describing the collection of birds collected on the Azores:
Lista de Aves do Museu Carlos Machado. Ponta Delgada, 2009.
Contains 1714 listed birds of which 244 concerns rare species collected on the Azores. Birds in the museum list are numbered; here LAMCM2009-1 to LAMCM2009-1714.
Lista das Aves do ”Museu Carlos Machado” . Capturadas nos AÇORES, mas que neles não nidificam.
Old typewritten list of birds collected on the Azores covering bird collected up to late 1964. Includes 212 birds where 209 can be found in the list from 2009, plus 3 birds which now are missing in the museum. Furthermore there are a number of older specimens mentioned by Bannerman and earlier visitors to the museum which now seem to be missing and not counted for in the existing museum lists. This is probably due to specimen lost in the traffic of loans to institutes, schools etc. outside the museum. Birds in this list are numbered; here OldAMCM1- to OldAMCM1628. A few are unnumbered; here OldAMCMx.
