Excerpt from The Birds of Ontario: Being a List of Birds Observed in the Province of Ontario, With an Account of Their Habits, Distribution, Nests, Eggs, &C
Valuable aid has also been received from J. A. Allen, President of the American Ornithologists Union, and from Messrs. Ridgeway, Merriam, Brewster and Wheaton, I have received useful suggestions. In Canada comparatively little attention has been given to the study of Ornithology, yet, Dr. Garnier, of Lucknow, W. E. Saunders, of London, W. L Scott and Geo. R. White, of Ottawa, and others have readily responded to all enquiries regarding the birds of their respective districts. I do not suppose that the list in its present form is complete, but look forward to having it increased by the addition of such casual visitors, or rare summer residents as may have escaped observation.
