FORSTER1, loe. cit. not of Pennant, which is N. hudaoniew. merian Museum at New York. IN Wilson's standard.work are described but, two species of Curlew, and no more than this are given by. Temminck in his very complete and excellent European Ornithology. We have brought forward three North .American and three European species, which, contrary to the generally received opinion, are all. .distinct from each other, and different in both continents, not one being found in Europe that is also. an inhabitant of America. These facts, independent of any reference to the almost intermi- nable confusion pervading the works of preceding authors, will sufficiently justify us -in repeating here and'stating wSith mor details what. we have published in our Monography; in which, if no new species, be introduced, (and the list is already too long,) we hope to bave placed the old ones in a new and more advan. tageous light.
