Few locations in the northwestern part of this country can boast the many shifts and oscillations in their bird-life which are positively known to have taken place on the island of Nantucket. This book, the first of its kind on a New England area, and the first of a series of New England Bird Studies, constitutes a notable contribution to population studies. In its opening pages the authors give the background necessary for the study of the birds of this locality, and point to the ornithological problems which still challenge the student of Nantucket birds. They devote the main portion of their book to a systematic list of all the birds of the Nantucket area—some two hundred and seventy-four.
