References to Feeding Habita of Certain Birds
It is believed the following references will be usefully put on record here. Though they appear in an ichthyological journal they are of direct interest to ornithologists.
Copeia, No. 21, p. 27, “On Fish-bones in a Kingfisher’s Nest.” The note does not give the specific identity of the bird but it unquestionably refers to the Belted Kingfisher (Ceryle aleyon), since that is the only kingfisher known to occur in the region where the observation was made.
Copeia, No. 26, p. 2, “Fish as Owl Food.” Notes the Great Horned Owl (Bubo virginianus) feeding on the Yellow Perch.
Copeia, No. 30, p. 31, “Louisiana Water-thrush eating Fish.” Seiurus motacilla observed catching small fish and picking the flesh.
