Abstract

The past summer and autumn have been marked by a
special visitation of two species of Australian Herons to Tasmania.
One, the White Egret, Herodias alba, Linn., which has
hitherto been an occasional straggler to the island, has
occurred in considerable numbers during the summer, both in
the north and south. The other, Ardea pacifica, Latham, a
rare visitant to Tasmania, has been half a dozen times met
with in the north during the past two months.
The localities visited by the White Egret appear to have
been the basin of the Derwent, including the Sorell district,
the Midlands, and the vicinity of the Tamar and Esk rivers
in the north
