The Atoll of Funafuti, Ellice group : its zoology, botany, ethnology and general structure based on collections made by Charles Hedley of the Australian Museum, Sydney, N.S.W.

[III.] — Aves

page 81


The Ornithological Collection made by Mr. Hedley consists of six specimens, referable to four well known Australasian species, and one egg. Mr. Hedley has supplied an interesting note on the "Lakea" (Micranous leucocapillus). Although found on most islets near the line, Totanus incanus and Sterna melanauchen have not, I believe, been previously recorded from the Ellice Islands.
