This manual is for biologists in remote refuges who have little to no background in necropsy techniques. It is intended to assist you in recognition of bird organs and in procurement of appropriate samples for pathologic and other laboratory assays. The manual will probably be most useful in situations when wildlife disease specialists are unable to assist in sample collection due to remoteness or inaccessibility of the site. WHY DO A NECROPSY? A necropsy is one of the basic tools used to determine why an animal dies. It involves the thorough examination of a carcass externally and internally for any indications of causes of death (lesions). A good necropsy involves careful observations of lesions or abnormalities and procurement, labeling, and storage of tissue samples. Laboratory tests on properly preserved tissues allow wildlife disease specialists to systematically evaluate potential causes of wildlife mortality. The better job you do with the field necropsy, the better the chance that wildlife disease specialists can determine what killed the animal. As such, select the freshest carcasses and, if at all possible, avoid freezing and thawing the carcass prior to necropsy as this can compromise microscopic appearance of tissues. When doing a necropsy, be observant and record your findings. If possible, take close up photos of interesting findings. Generally, findings will deviate from normal either in shape, color, consistency, number or size. For example, a normal bird liver would be firm with sharp borders and have a homogenous chocolate brown color. An abnormality in the liver may manifest itself in the form of abnormal coloration (spots or blotches), consistency (too soft, too hard), size (excessively large or small), or shape (lumps, bumps or scars). Obviously, many of these interpretations require knowing what a "normal" organ looks like. Although this is best learned by doing many necropsies, reference to photographs (as in this manual), will aid the novice in assessing whether or not an organ appears normal or not.
