The Birdwing Butterfly can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers: "The world's largest butterflies, birdwing butterflies, have wings that can measure 30 cm long. The females have longer wings than the males, while the males' wings have a deeper blue color. Though they are extremely popular with collectors, international trading is either limited or fully banned."
Upon catching the insect, the player will say the following:
"I caught a birdwing butterfly! Wow! It's about the size of a bird!"
