BULLETIN OF THE NUTTALL ORNITHOLOGICAL CLUB:

A QUARTERLY JOURNAL OF ORNITHOLOGY.



ANNOUNCEMENT FOR 1877.

As the preaei^t number closes Volume L of the Bulletin, the first
number of Volume II. will appear in January, 1877, and the succeeding
numbers of the volume will be issued on the first of each following
Quarter. In closing Volume I. the Publishing Committee take pleasure
in announcing that the publication of the Bulletin has met with encour-
aging success. Not only have contributions to its pages been received
from the best ornithological talent of the country, but subscriptions
have come in with reasonable fi:^uency. Since, however, the continu-
ance of the Bulletin is necessarily contingent upon the pecuniary sup-
port it receives from the public, we trust that our present patrons wil
not only all promptly renew their subscriptions, but will use their influ-
ence to extend its circulation. It is hopcKl that with the second volume
it will be possible to increase the number of pages from twenty-four to
thirty-two in each issue. In order to do this a considerable increase to
our subscription list will be necessary, and we therefore appeal strongly
to all friends of ornithology to aid in extending its circulation.

In order to assist in defraying the expenses of publication, advertising
sheets will be issued with future numbers, relating mainly to Natural
History, wid especially to Ornithology, The attention of dealers in
specimens of Natural History and collectors' and taxidermists' materials,
and of publishers of works relating to Natural History, is hence called to
the Bulletin as a desirable advertising medium.

The present Volume embraces one hundred pages of original mat-
ter, contributed largely by leading authorities on American Ornithol-
ogy. The department of "General Notes" is particularly rich in notices
of rare or little-known species, and the volume as a whole forms an
important contribution to American Ornithology. As the maga-
zine will continue under its present editorial management, — Mr. J. A.
Allen acting as Editor-in-Chief, and Professor S. F. Baird and Dr.
Elliott Coues as Associate Editors, — and as it has the assurance of con-
tinued support from the best writers, the Publishing Committee do not
hesitate to annoimce that Volume II. may be expected to be equally
rich in important contributions. The Bulletin is intended to be national
in its character, and for the present will be exclusively devoted to
North American Ornithology. It being the only journal in this coun-
try devoted especially to ornithology, it is hoped that our appeal for
pecuniary support will meet with a prompt response, and that we shall
be able to enter upon the publication of Volume II. with feelings of
confidence respecting the permanence of the Bulletin as an Ornithologi-
cal Magazine.

Terms. — Subscription, $ 1.00 a year (including postage), strictly in
advance ; single numbers, 30 cents. Subscriptions should be forwarded
to Mr. H. B. Bailey, Newton, Mass.

Advertising Rates. — First msertion, 30 cents a line (Bourgeois),
or $ 12.00 per page ; $ 6.50 per half-page. A discount of twenty-five
per cent, will be made for each subsequent insertion.

Commtmications intended for publication, as well as advertise-
ments, should be sent to Mr. J. A. Allen, Museum of Comparative
Zoology, Cambridge, Mass.

This Journal (now in its second Tolame) forms at present the odIj serial pnblicatioa
in America devoted to

GENERAL ORNITHOLOaT.

While it is intended to serve primarily as a medium of oommnnioation between working
ornithologists, it also contains matter of a sufficiently popular character to interest all who
take an interest in the general subjecf. of which it treats. Although devoted mainly to the
ornithology of North America, it is intended to be so far general in its character as to give
notices of all the more important works or memoirs relating to Ezotio Obzcitholoot.

its department for revi<»ws of the current ornithological literature gives prompt noUcee of all
papers relating to North American ornithology, and of all the more important f pecial works
and memoirs relnting to the ornithology of other portions of the world ; while its department
of" Gekeral Notes" is rich in notices of rare and little-known species of American birds.
It is hence indispensable to any one wishing to keep pace with the rapid advance of orni-

general subject of North American Ornithology.

" Shipping clothing to England strikes us Toiy much like sending ^ Coals to Newcastle,* but the merits
of the * BOSTON SHOOTING SUl^ > hare been heard of in the Old Country, and that land of sports-

Tsqiilrements for American service. Particular attention has been paid to color.
