During the year 1959 I banded 1,031 birds of 70 species. Of these, 8 were banded at Dauphin Island, 482 at Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, and the remainder at my home in Birmingham, Alabama. With the exception of 10 Starlings which were captured at night with hand nets, all of the birds were either trapped or mist netted. At the time of their capture, they were banded, measured, and weighed. Plumage notes were taken in most cases.
