Protected Species

Non-game migratory birds, such as hawks and songbirds, are protected and can be mounted with the proper permits, but can only be displayed in a museum, nature center, school, university, library or other public area for educational purposes.

Most of these places, especially the museums and nature centers, already have the proper permits and you would be covered under those permits. Migratory birds must have both a Federal Wildlife Salvage Permit and a Virginia Wildlife Salvage Permit attached to it.

If you found a dead bird, and want to know if you can get it mounted, we have some more information for you.
