Notes From Omaha

Old Squaw Duck (Clangula hyemalis). Two specimens of this bird were killed on Cut-off Lake near this city December 8, 1900, by a local sportsman. He had never seen this species before, brought the heads to me to identify, and I have them now in my possession.

White-Winged Scoter (Oidenmia deglandi). I have one of these ducks which was killed on Cut-off Lake, December 8, 1900.

Tufted Titmouse (Parus bicolor). One was killed by L.F. Skow near Florence, October 5, 1900.

Evening Grosbeak (Coccothraustes vespertinus). A specimen was killed by L. Skow near Florence, October 12, 1900. The heads and wings of two were also brought by a local sportsman (?) to R. F. Mullen during the first week of November, 1900.

Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher (Polioptila caerulea). Two nests containing three and four eggs respectively were found near Bellevue in June, 1900. F.H. Shoemaker and I.S. Trostler photographed one of these after the young were hatched.

Yellow-throated Vireo (Vireo flavifrons). R.F. Mullen found a nest and four eggs of this species near Bellevue in June, 1900.

Cerulean Warbler (Dendrodoa caerulea). I found three nests of this species in 1900 near Bellevue. One contained four badly incubated eggs, the second a young bird, the third three slightly incubated eggs.
