Notes and News
The painting of Squirrel Cuckoos by Andrew Jackson Grayson which appears as the frontispiece in this issue represents a pair of birds taken by him on November 1, 1864, on the Rio MazatIan, Sinaloa. Mr. Grayson remarked in his notes that this species is “to be met with in thick woody districts of the Pacific slope from Mazatl&n to Tehuantepec and perhaps farther south. It is silent and rather solitary in its habits and not uncommon.”
