Subject: Re: Miramichi Wild Flowers (1887)

Shawn McCarthy sent me an article he found : The desirability of the protection and encouragement of birds in and around Chatham (see attached). Inside, it referenced a paper by the "Natural History Association of Miramichi".

A search of the paper led me to the scan in the Biodiversity Heritage Library (see Migration of Birds). In the search portal, I also found Miramichi Wild Flowers when I looked for other documents about Miramichi.

The reason I went looking for the reference is because I thought it was strange that the article mentioned the feeding habits of the Cerulean Warbler. Almost as if the Cerulean Warbler is a typical resident. While it turns out not to be a regular occurrence, Cerulean Warbler was seen in Miramichi on May 25th, 1891. Other noteworthy sightings include White-eyed Vireo on May 21st, 1898 and Vesper Sparrow regularly occurring.
