The Third Edition of Bailey's Handbook of Birds of the Western United States appeared early in the year and attests to the popularity of the work. It remains our only good local text-book of birds, and we hope that further editions will be warranted in the not distant future.

The third edition of the Handbook presents no decided alterations as compared with the first and second. However, all errors discovered have been corrected, many of the photographs of bird-skins have been replaced with drawings, and the forms of Astragalinus have been revised in the text to accord with the late rulings of the A. O. U. Committee.
