This is all very interesting - thanks to everyone who has weighed in on the subject of permitting!
As someone noted already, these laws are in place for very good reason and, tangled as they may get for special exceptions, I absolutely support their purpose in protecting our wildlife.

Organizations that rehab birds for "education purposes" cannot come to my local drawing classes, because I charge a fee, and the rehabilitator cannot earn money off the birds. However they take them to schools, bird festivals and are shown to the public there.

My question is -- what about the natural science stores that sell skulls and feathers, etc.? I have collected a few skulls bought in places like The Bone Room http://boneroom.com/ and - one of my favorites - a sort of shaman supply store in Sedona http://www.clearcreektrading.com/. I've always wondered how they trade commercially in items we may be forbidden to collect in the wild.
