to amplify Harry Pavulaan's message about interstate hysteria....

I remember that sometime in the 1970's, museums began having problems 
and concerns with shipping bird specimens (legitimately taken in the 
past) from one museum to another across state lines. It became a 
potential violation of some act or other, even when the specimens in 
question were not endangered or threatened.  Eventually I understand 
this was ironed out with the USFWS.
