Abstract

Recently the University of South Carolina press published an outstanding volume on the avifauna of that state. In years past other states have published similar works concerning their respective avifaunas. But alas, Iowa, or the entire Middle Western region for that matter, have remained in the background. This is not apparently because of the lack of interest in its bird life, or relative abundance of observers; but simply a matter of circumstances that can be rectified only with the passing of years. The 1907 list of The Birds of Iowa by R. M. Anderson is outdated in some respects while the 1934 list of Philip DuMont is now a rare collector’s item; rare enough indeed so that the majority of students are unable to obtain copies. The only other source of information is to page through the issues of Iowa Bird Life and one can receive an idea of the changes and additions to our Iowa avifauna.
