\ The Baltimore oriole, that brilliant

Georgh 'Calvert, the first Lord Balti

as far as British Columbia, is now
passing thriought on its. jouirne to its

northern part of South America. In
its spring migrations thig little bird
presents a problem that has been ill
solved by field investigators.
When on its northward ourney it
appears on -tihe southern coasts of
this country iif the early spring and
travels about twenty miles a day for
six weeks intil it reaches the north
ern part of Nebraska. ihen just about
this time, and before they have beeni
seen in any of the intervening coun
try, red-eyed vireos are noted in
Southern British Columbia, 1,000
