During January of the present year (1930) I had occasion to drive from New Hampton, Iowa, to Canastota, New York, a distance in direct line of perhaps not over a thousand miles, but with the inclusion of side trips and an occasional detour, about two hundred miles was added. I left New Hampton at noon, January 16th, and arrived at Canastota the evening of January 25th. A list of the birds seen enroute was closely kept. Most of those observed were seen from the road as I was driving along, but some were added when I would stop for a day or two to visit with friends and to take an occasional excursion into the fields and woods.
