Winter Occurrence of the Townsend Warbler at Portland, Oregon

On January 13, 1928, a much-emaciated Townsend Warbler (Dendroica townsendi) was found dead on one of the city streets of Portland (Pacific Coast Avifauna, No. 19, 1929, p. 40) and reported as the first winter record available at that time. Since then, Miss Maude Ragon of the local Audubon Society brought another adult male to the writer on January 12, 1931; and the third, also a male, was found dead in the same part of the city on January 13, 1932, by Miss Ruth Russell, who also found the specimen in 1928. It is interesting to note that the three winter records of the occurrence of this warbler in Oregon should be reported on January 13, 1928, January 12, 1931, and January 13, 1932, all three by Miss Ragon and Miss Russell.
