A Correction Concerning the Tawny Creeper

In the Proceedings of the California Academy of Sciences, fourth series, IX, no. 10, p. 290 the Tawny Creeper (Certhia familiaris occidentalis) is listed among the species noted as nesting on Mount St. Helena, Napa County, California. In the original draft of this paper there was a question-mark after this subspecies, but somehow or other the matter escaped my mind thereafter. The nesting birds had been watched at close range, but no specimens had been secured at the time. I would like to say that some have been taken since and have proved that the former record of the form as C. f. zelotes, or Sierra Creeper, for that region is correct.
