The Catbird in Southern Idaho.

On August 1, 1909, while prowling along a thick fringe of scrub willow, beside a lagoon-like pond on the Boise river bottoms, I started the only catbird (Dumetella carolinensis) I have seen this side of the Rocky Mountains. At the time I did not think the occurrence specially worthy of note, as I was then new to this section; but having explored this same thicket and others of a similar sort and in similar location, many times since, without results, I have concluded the species is rare, in this section at least.
