Abstract

The object of this problem is to obtain accurate data on the species of birds to be found in this region, and the number of each species. Each week as many hours as possible are spent in the field collecting information. Due to unavoidable circumstances the total number of hours afield varies considerably each week. This census is not intended to be a complete survey of the birds in this area, rather it is a preliminary study and its purpose is to serve as an incentive for future students of biology to pursue this problem so that eventually an accurate picture of the avifauna of this vicinity will have been compiled, and information will be available to those who want it in order that they may know what birds are found here, when they are found, and in what numbers they are present. So far as I have been able to learn no extensive work of this nature has ever been attempted in Mt. Pleasant.
