ALASKA THE BIRD PARADISE.
Birds so thick that a ship literally
plowed its way through them is the
description brought hack from
Alaska by F. Seymour Hersey, and
just published by the Smithsonian
Institution, from data compiled by
Hersey on his field trip last summer
collecting records and photographs
for the completion of the "Life His
tories of North American Birds."
Prof. Hersey made the trip on the
revenue cutter Bear, which each sea
son makes the trip from Seattle
Wash., to Point Barrow, the topmost
point of the continent, in Alaska. As
the vessel neared Unimak Pass the
number of birds "Increased to a point
almost beyond belief, ". Hersey t-J

Proceeding to St Michael, Hersey
used a small power boat to carry
him and his outfit to the mouth of
the Yukon river. Here the whole
stretch of the Yukon delta is kept as
a "bird reservation." This flat delta
is literally covered with birds.
Hersey found several rae species,
among the Aleutian Tern, which has
always been scarce and which was
recently thought to be extinct An
other rare bird which he found is
Fisher's Petrel, which was represent
ed in museums by only a single spec

Alaska has its own variety of spar
row known as the Aleutian sparrow.
It is one of the 20 or more varieties
of the sparrow family that cover the
United States from east' to west
There are nine bird reservations in
Alaska. These are in charge of the
Biological survey of the department
As it is with game, so with bird
life, Alaska is the last great refuge
for the birds. A more intelligent care
of the feathered tribes may prevent
the practical extinction of certain
species, such as has taken place'in
