A new Air Museum ticket for a rare bird has added another perk to the Air Museum experience.
The aviancas ticket, which can be purchased at the Air Museums official store or online, includes a certificate of authenticity that lets the user know that it’s a real bird and the authenticity is not a hoax.
“Avianca is a bird that was collected and preserved by the avian museum, but it was actually captured by the Air Force,” the certificate reads.
“The certificate is not an official Air Force certificate and does not guarantee that the bird is genuine.”
The certificate includes the bird’s identification number, name, age and location.
The Air Museum says the certificate is a good way to verify the bird was captured by an official military unit and not a wild animal.
“This certificate will help ensure that any future avian-related tickets sold at the museum are genuine,” Air Museum spokesperson Julie Roesch said in a statement.
“We are always looking for ways to further increase our collection of birds, so if you see something interesting on the air, please let us know.”
The Air Museum has long been the unofficial home of aviancares rarest of birds.
Its aviancanaries collection is one of the largest in the world, but the museum has struggled to keep up with demand.
A recent increase in ticket sales has helped the museum make up for lost sales.
Aviancas is the first bird that the museum plans to release in the future.
The aviancat was found by the National Geographic Society in 2011.
It was part of a research expedition in Hawaii.
The museum first collected and released the avians in 2013.
It then released its own avian, a black-crowned hummingbird.
