The Bird Collection Catalogue (Aves) within Oltenia Museum represents a scientific instrument of one of the most important collections of the Department of Natural Sciences – Oltenia Museum Craiova, namely the bird collection, including 1,739 specimens (1,060 naturalized birds, 670 preserved skins, 6 trophies, 3 skeletons), preserved in the museum’s store and exhibition areas.
