147 Dusky Warbler. Helminthophila celata sordida. A regular and not uncommon fall migrant. I have never seen any in the spring.

148 Yellow Warbler. Dendroica estiva. One of the commonest of the migrating warblers.

150 Audubon's Warbler. Dendroica audubonit. Abundant from about the middle of September to the end of April.

156 Western Yellowthroat. Geothlypis occidentalts trichas. A very abundant resident. These birds probably migrate to some extent as their numbers in this vicinity are often greatly increased during the migration. On Apr. 3, 1899. I flushed at least twenty birds, nearly all males, out of a small patch of grass and weeds about fifty feet square. In two or three days they were all gone and only a single pair was to be found in the place.

158 Pileolated Warbler. Sylvania pusilla pileolata. A common migrant. They arrive here about the first of April and though they do not breed in the locality, they are abundant here, while found breeding in other places. In the fall they are about the last of the migrants to leave.

165 Tule Wren. Cistothorus palustris paludicola. A very common winter resident.

166 Canada Nuthatch. Sitta canadensis. These birds were quite common in this vicinity from the middle of September to about the middle of October, 1898. This is the only time that I have ever seen any in this vicinity.
