Bird Notes


IN the August Zoologist Mr. Collingwood Ingram A points out that four races of the furze-warbler are recognisable, namely, the typical Sylvia undulata of the northern Mediterranean countries, S. u. aremoricus of the Atlantic coast of France and Spain, the north African S. u. toni, and o the British S. u. dartfordiensis, a Dartford warbler, the last being distinguished by its brown back and the smaller development of the white tips to the throat, and breast feathers.
