NOTES.

ORNITHOLOGICAL RESULTS DURING 1898.

During the season just closed, steady progress has been made in Australian ornithology and oology. A new and interesting bird from the North West Cape has been described by Mr. A. J. Campbell as Stipiturus ruficeps (Rufous-crowned Emu Wren). He has also given provisional descriptions of three other birds from the same quarter, namely :

-Calamanthus rubiginosus (Rusty-red Field Wren), Acanthogenys flavacanthus (Yellow-spined Honey-eater), and Ptilotis carteri (Western White-plumed Honey-eater). The “Garganey,' or Blue-winged Teal (Querquedula circa) of Europe has been added to the list of Australian avifauna, as a pair has been identified that was shot at Lake Connewarre, near Geelong. With regard to

our eggs, the following have been discovered :

Astur leucosomus (Lesser White Goshawk)
Chlamydodera australis (Great Bower-bird).
Chnydodera guttata (Yellow-spotted Bower-bird).
Drymaædus brunneopygius (Scrub Robin).
Ephthianura crocea (Yellow-breasted Chat).
Myzomela pectoralis (Banded Honey-eater).
Ptilotis flavistriata (Yellow-streaked Honey-eater).
Atrichia rufescens (Rufous Scrub-bird).
Trichoglossus rubritorquis (Red-collared Lorikeet).
Ptistes coccineopterus (Crimson-winged Lory).
Psephodes nigrogularis (Black-throated Coachwhip-bird).

Mr. S. W. Jackson, (N.S.W.), was the fortunate finder of the nest of the rare Scrub-bird, while four of the other nests discovered were due to the enterprise of Drs. Charles Ryan, and Wm. Snowball and Mr. Dudley Le Souëf, who sent a collector to Northern Australia for four months. Contributed.

A flamingo was shot at Connewarre Lakes last January, and was brought into the town to be stuffed.

NESTS AND EGGS OF AUSTRALIAN

BIRDS.

We have received a copy of the prospectus of Mr. A. J. Campbell's long-promised book on Australian Birds, which is to be issued shortly under the above title. This book is the result of the work of some thirty years as a naturalist, and will contain 130 photographs of nests, with figures of over 200 eggs coloured according to nature.

With the exception of Gould's work there is no reliable book dealing with Australian ornithology as a whole (the Australian museum catalogue deals with nests and eggs only), and a vast amount of work has been done since Gould's handbook appeared-nearly forty years ago. In qology in particular great progress has been made, and no inconsiderable portion of this is due to Mr. Campbell's own research, which has extended into every corner of the continent, and many of the islands round about. His immense collection of Australian eggs is well known

Of course there is a great deal of work in articles in scientific papers and in journals of various societies, but this is scattered and inaccessible to most of us in its present form, and so the book is the more welcome.

Besides dealing with nests and eggs, it will contain observations on the habits of the birds and notes on their geographical distribution, and of the quality of these there is no need to speak, as Mr. Campbell's work is known to all bird-men as well as to many others.

Of the sample pages printed with the prospectus, the printing is good and the type clear, and the illustrations shown are really beautiful examples of work. The book will consist of some 800 pages, and we cordially hope that it may attain the success it deserves. The agent for Victoria is Mr. T. G. Campbell, Beatty Avenue, Armadale.

PORTRAITURE IN THE HOUSE.

The Photographer's Record. We know that practically every house is almost certain to contain a room which may be improvised as a temporary studio, whether it has one window or two, whether a top light or only a side light. Of course some rooms answer better than others; perhaps the most convenient would be a fairly long room having two windows at the side with a space between them. Let us briefly describe the arrangement which should be made in a room of this class to adapt it for portraiture, and also the very few appliances which are really necessary for the purpose,
