Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1905 edition. Excerpt: ...parents, were in evidence everywhere. Molothrus a. obscurus. Dwarf Cowbird. Fairly abundant, though not nearly so common as in the lowlands. I saw one young bird being fed by a plumbeous gnatcatcher not quite half his size. Icterus parisorum. Scott Oriole. A few seen, but they were not at all common. Icterus c. nelsoni. Arizona Hooded Oriole. Much moie abundant than the last mentioned species, but found generally at a lower altitude, most of those seen being in the deep ravine below the mountains. Carpodacus m. frontalis. House Finch. Very abundant along the lower canyons, particularly in the deep ravine before mentioned. I think the house finches were more abundant here than in any other place I have visited in southem Arizona, where I have never seen them in anything like the large numbers occurring in California. Junco p. palliatus. Arizona Junco. A few seen, none below 6000 feet. Some juveniles were secured. Amphispiza b. deserticola. Black-throated Sparrow. Very common everywhere along the foothills and out on the mesa. Full grown juveniles were secured. Aimophila r. scotti. Scott Sparrow. Fairly common on the rock-strewn foothills. Pipilo m. megalonyx. Spurred Towhee. Quite common; seen mostly along the canyons. Pipilo f. mesoleucus. Canyon Towhee. Fairly common in the lower parts of the mountains. I found one nest containing young just hatched, but full grown juveniles were also seen. Zamelodia melanocephala. Black-headed Grosbeak. Seen in the higher parts of the range, but not very abundantly. Some birds were also seen in the lower foothills, where they certainly were not breeding. Piranga hepatica. Hepatic Tanager. A few seen in the higher parts of the mountains. Adults and juveniles were secured. Piranga r. cooperi. Cooper Tanager....show more
