The Seasonal Distribution of Oceanic Birds in the Western North Atlantic
Abstract:For a number of years a log has been kept on the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution vessel Atlantis of all birds seen at sea. This recording, which was initiated by Dr. A. C. Redfield, has largely been carried out by Chief Engineer Harold Backus, but a considerable body of data has also been contributed by Dr. Redfield, Alfred H. Woodcock, Dean F. Bumpus, Frank J. Mather III and others. A similar record has been kept by the author for the Bermuda area and during several North Atlantic transects, and some of this has already been published (Moore 1941). Dr. E. F. Thompson and Miss K. S. Russell assisted with these. Redfield (1941) has published those of his observations which were relevant to the Gulf of Maine.
