From the collection of Nils Hamm, a collection of books from the Library of Congress that will be donated to the National Museum of American History.
This one is the collection’s most recent item.
“The owl is a remarkable creature,” says Hamm.
“It has the ability to fly, it has the abilities to breathe air, and it is capable of speech.
So this is a very, very special bird, and we want to preserve it.”
The collection is currently on display at the museum, but Hamm is also hoping to donate the owl to the Smithsonian Institution.
This image shows an owl that has been named after James Watson, one of the most important scientists of the 19th century.
Hamm hopes to donate it to the Museum of Natural History.
He says the owl will be a “great example of how we can keep the spirit of the owl alive in the modern world.”
Hamm is hoping to save the owl from extinction, and he says the idea is not just for him to collect and keep it, but also for the owl itself.
“I believe in the owl, but I also believe in conservation,” he says.
“If we can preserve it, we will be helping it thrive.”
Hamm says he wants to preserve the bird’s personality and keep the owl’s story alive in his own family.
“As I grew up, I never got to see my grandfather,” Hamm says.
Hamm says his grandfather, William M. Webb, died of brain cancer at the age of 75.
Webb was a professor at Columbia University and a professor of natural history at Yale University, where he studied the evolution of bird species and their relationship to each other.
He died of heart failure in 1946, less than a month after he graduated.
“He lived a very remarkable life,” Hamm explains.
“A very happy, successful man who lived with dignity, was a great scientist and a great scholar.
And we should always remember that.”
Hamm’s grandmother, Dorothy Webb, also passed away in the 1940s.
Hamm’s father, David, is a veterinarian.
“My dad was very, sort of, a conservationist,” Hamm tells National Review.
“We always had wild animals in the backyard, but it was all about keeping them safe.”
Hamm hopes the owl can be preserved and kept for the benefit of other conservationists.
“When I look at the owls in the wild, I feel like, wow, they really are very special,” he adds.
“And they are really beautiful.”
