It has been my purpose not to include within this list any species which has not been taken in the State and not to note any species as having bred unless I am satisfied upon good authority that it has done so. I have added a supplemental list of species, which, from their having been taken near our limits, may, with more or less probability, be expected to be found within the State. I have not followed the plan of the publication of Dr. Brayton, of which this is the successor and from which many notes have been taken, but have preferred to adopt the form herein chosen, thinking it would be acceptable, because different from anything which has been published concerning the birds of the State. The difficulty has been to condense the mass of notes at hand into the limited space accorded by the Society. It is very much desired, and I trust that we shall have, in the immediate future, a report of proper size, concerning the Birds of Indiana~ and their economic relations.
