Some Bird Records for Southern Nevada.-Linsdale, in his “Birds of Nevada” (Pac. Coast Avif. No. 23, 1936:31), records two Anthony Green Herons taken on May 7, 1934, on the Colorado River opposite Fort Mojave in the extreme southern part of Clark County, Nevada.

On June 30, 1947, the writer observed two Green Herons (Butorides virescens) at the mouth of Muddy Creek which enters Boulder Canyon south of Overton, Nevada. On the adjacent mud flats a small flock of seven Western Sandpipers (Ereunetes mauri) and one Greater Yellow-legs (Totanus melanoleucus) were also seen. These apparently were extremely early fall migrants. Near them were two broods of Cinnamon Teal, a female Shoveller, and two female Mallard ducks.-CLARENCE COTTAM, Fish and Wildlife ’ Service, Chicago, Illinois, July 16, 1947.
