Title:The Life History and Distribution of the Prothonotary Warbler in Illinois
Author(s):Loucks, W.E.
Subject(s):Illinois Warbler
Illinois Birds
ornithology
Abstract:During the latter part of the year 1892, Dr. A. C. Murchison and the writer issued circulars to some two (hundred persons in the State of Illinois who were known to be interested in ornithology, soliciting their cooperation in ascertaining the distribution of certain birds in this State. Though at first the response was very light, it has since proved highly gratifying, far exceeding expectations. The object in view was to obtain by means of cooperative labor the present range of certain species of birds in Illinois, and to issue monthly reports, based on the contributors' notes and such information as could be obtained from lists and catalogues, both state and local. By January 1, 1893, we had the assurance of aid from about forty ornithologists, taxidermists, and collectors residing in Illinois, or in adjacent states, in close proximity to the Illinois line. Through the kindness of Mr. Frank B. Webster, the first paper, by Dr. A. C. Murchison, treating of the long-eared owl, -appeared in the February number of the Ornithologist and Oologist, together with a reference map, an incomplete list of the contributors' names, and a few introductory remarks by the writer. Up to January 1, 1894, articles on the distribution of the long-oared owl. Cooper's hawk, bobolink, mockingbird, black-crowned night heron, and yellow-headed blackbird, had appeared in the above magazine.
