Further Records of the Spotted Owl in the State of Washington.-In the Condor for November, 1946 (p. 283), Slipp records several occurrences of the Spotted Owl (Skiz occidentdis uwri~) in the state of Washington. Tbe following are additional records for the species in Grays Harbor County: one found on the highway near McCleary, September 10, 1940: one found on the beach dunes near Grayland, October 1, 1941; two collected by Harold K. Matheson about ten miles southeast of Lake Quinault, elevation about 1000  feet.

These specimen records and several sight records by myself and other observers make it a.ppear that this owl inhabits the heavy timber fairly commonly in western Washington as far south as Willapa Harbor.-GORDON D. AIDORN, College of Puget Sound, Tacoma, Washington, February 25,1947.
