och här torde nog vara yttersta gränsen för dess
häckningsområde åt detta håll. Det var även intressant att finna
lappmesen och göktytan, lynx, inom samma trakt. Den senare
var ganska vanlig på Kronörn inne i barrskogen och, att den
där hade sin goda bärgning, kunde ses därav, att ett för
Riksmuseet skjutet exemplar vid konservering visade sig mycket fett.

Abstract: A review of birds observed during a short trip to
Lapland and to the coast of Västerbotten. Remarks concerning
the Redshanks, Tofanas tofanus, breeding in the mountain region
of Northern Sweden: These birds remain at their breeding places
till the middle of Aug. or longer. At the southern point of the
island of Öland adult Redshanks begin to pass on their way south about
the middle of July, and the young birds two weeks låter, while the
Redshanks along the coast of Norway do not migrate until in the
lätter half of Aug. (according to Collett). It is thus probabl.e,
that the Redshanks passing Öland all come from the coasts of the
Baltic basin, and that the Redshanks from the northern mountain
region of Sweden migrate along the coast of Norway. By this it
is also made probable, that the Redshanks now inhabiting the
Swedish mountain region once invaded the country from the west
during the lätter part of the Glacial äge, when a series of great
lakes with western drainage and dammed up by the inland ice in
the eastern parts of Northern Sweden occupied approximately the
same area, which now is inhabited by the Redshanks in the
mountain region.

The author has shot an old female of Hareida hyemalis in
moult to ecclipse, or third plumage. This is shown on the plate.
Especially of interest is the blackness of the back and the
mouse-grey fiank-feathers, which resembie those of the young hird in its
first plumage.

Parus cintus was found to breed as far south as at 630 26’ on
wooded islands at the coast, where it met and occurred in the same
place, as lynx in the fir-woods.
