The Auk, Vol. 12, No. 3 (Jul., 1895), pp. 297-298


Local ornithologists are considerably interested in the occurrence of the Turnstone (Strepsilas interpres) in this State. Three were shot at Lincoln Salt Lake on the 25th of May of this year. These were secured by Mr. W. D. Hunter of the Department of Taxidermy, and were placed by him in the State Museum. This is the first authentically reported occurrence of this bird in Nebraska. So far as we can learn it is not reported for any of our neighboring States.
