dc.description.abstract The purpose of this work is to make available reports and letters for the Oregon Coast that were in the files of the Biological Survey and that are now in the files of the Biological Survey's successor, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. I have changed outdated bird names to those that are used today, so that the reader can more easily understand the reports. But this monograph does not analyze these reports or letters; that is left to the reader. Not all of these reports were done for the Biological Survey. The reports in 1884 and 1885 were for the American Ornithologists' Union Committee on Bird Migration, reports in 1886-1890 were for the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Division of Entomology, Investigations in Economic Ornithology; reports in 1891-1896 were for the USDA, Division of Economic Ornithology and Mammalogy or Division of Ornithology and Mammalogy; reports in 1897-1905 were for the USDA, Division of Biological Survey; and reports in 1906-1923 were for the USDA, Bureau of Biological Survey. Ira N. Gabrielson and Stanley G. Jewett both worked for the Biological Survey and used some of the unpublished information in the Biological Survey files in writing their classic 1940 book. They discussed the work of the Biological Survey in Oregon on their pages 56-58. The observations in the Biological Survey files and those cited by Gabrielson and Jewett (1940) are sometimes the only information available about birds in some parts of Oregon prior to 1940. Unfortunately, it has not been widely known that at least some of the files accumulated by the Biological Survey still exist and are on microfilm ("Bird Migration Schedules, Reel 17, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, and Ohio") at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Patuxent Wildlife Research Center Library in Laurel, Maryland. Upon request, the Patuxent Library may loan out the microfilm reel through Interlibrary Loan to an established library, where the reader can then peruse the contents. en_US
