Two-hundred and fifty-nine small rodents were collected in Black Hawk County, Iowa, from June 1961 to June 1962. Specimens were taken from 53 locations in the county. Specimens of the following species were collected: Spermophilus tridecemlineatus tridecemlineatus, Reithrodontomys megalotis dychei, Peromyscus maniculatus bairdii, Peromyscus leucopus noveboracensis, Microtus pennsylvanicus pennsylvanicus, Microtus ochrogaster ochrogaster, and Mus musculus. Perognathus flavescens perniger and Tamias striatus griseus were reported to have been obtained by other investigators, but neither was taken during this study period.
