Abstract
HUXLEY (1927) remarked that accurate weight measurements should be as much a matter of systematic routine as length-measurements or colour-descriptions". More recently Baldwin and Kendeigh (1938) have noted how very little information is available for wild species, and remarked that "the weighing of all birds collected might well be made a fundamental policy in all museums ". Nice (1938), about the same time, made a strong plea for the weighing of all birds that were handled by ringers. Both papers gave data of great interest on daily and seasonal weight- variations in a number of North American species and provided valuable bibliographies.
