Correction of Data Reported on White-throated Sparrows.-In my paper on gonadal and fat responses in White-throated Sparrows (Condor, 55, 1953: 187-192), the last two sentences on page 189 should have read as follows: About one week later, on March 1, it weighed 35.8 grams, an increase of 9.4 grams or 35.6 per cent, and showed a very heavy fat deposition ! For this period of 8 days this bird was adding weight on an average of 1.18 grams per day, a truly remarkable rate.- ALBERT WOLFSON, Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois, August 22, 1953.
