The bird collection at San Carlos University (USAC) is part of the Biological Collections System administrated by the School of Biology, Facultad de Ciencias Químicas y Farmacia. The collection is made up of approximately 1,600 specimens. Species from different regions of Guatemala are represented, with greater emphasis on species from mountain ecosystems.
