My IViend, Ooorgo A. Boardman of Milltown, Mo., has been ho for- tunate as to find its nest, witli eggs, in that neighborhood. It usually builds in a hollow troo, l)ut soniotiines constructs a habi- tation in the crotcli of a tall troo, of slii's, ^Tass, and feathers. Accoiuinc (•) Richardson, it lays two white globular eggs. Two beautiful spcciinens in my collection, from William Couper, Esq., Quebec, collected at North- ern Labrador by the Montanaz Indians, arc a trifle more elongated and pointed than tho eggs of the Red Owl {Scopa a%io^. They are of a pure- white color, and measure 1.50 by 1.25 inch and 1.47 by 1.22 inch.. NOTES. I append tho following notes, that have been kindly fur- nished me by William Couper, of Quebec, Lower Canada, for the purpose of showing the northern distribution of tho birds of prey described in the preceding pages: — HTPOTEIOECHIS COtUMBABniS. ~ Only young specimens occur, and tliose rarely, in the latitude of Quebec: they are more common toward the western portions of Lower and Upper Canada. It has not, to my knowledge, been found breeding in Canada. TT'J'^USPULDS 8PABVEEIUS. — This species is more abundant than the pre r k'iJt t' e majority of the specimens shot in the neighborhood of Que'.-o irn »' IT.
