Text Appearing Before Image:
until Mr. Rollo H. Beck, of the Brewster-Sanford expeditionto South America, found them breeding on islands in the Juan Fer-nandez group, off the coast of Chile. He has kindly sent me thefollowing notes: On December 12, 1913, I started out from the settlement on Masatierra Island,of the Juan Fernandez group (which lies about 400 miles to the westward ofValparaiso, Chile), to find the nests of the pink-footed shearwater. About fourmiles from the village many holes were found, but nearly all were too deepand long to be opened without pick or shovel. One hole 6 feet long was openedand a pair of birds was found at the end. Burrows were found from nearshore up into the ferns at 1,500 feet elevation. On the 15th I went again tothe colony with a man to dig for me. One burrow was followed for 10 feet.It then ))ranched for the third time and went too deep to follow. Nearly allthe burrows were 6 feet or more in length; sometimes a little grass was found U. S. NATIONAL MUSEUM BULLETIN 121 PL. 14

On the31st of January we tried the colony again and found a few birds on eggsnearly ready to hatch. In two holes examined cold eggs were found contain-ing young birds alive, though barely able to move. One young bird 3 daysold was found in another burrow. Several single adult birds of both sexeswere taken from holes and these on dissection sliowed small sexual organs.Some holes that showed fresh soil about them were opened, but no birds werefound
