Mr. J. A. Carlisle,
Tilden, Nebr.

My Dear Sir:-
That portion of your letter relating to a new bird for your region has been referred to me for reply. If you had not mentioned that the bird hard a tuft on its head much like that of a bluejay I would suggest that the bird is the one known as the Pinion jay. In every other respect except the tuft you describe answers to the bird just named. They belong to the same family and have somewhat similar habits to those of the bluejay. I am glad to hear that you are a friend of the birds and trust that you will do your share of spreading the gospel of bird protection. I am sending you her with a little leaflet on the subject. In case you want more of them for distribution among the boys let me know and I will send them to you.
Yours very truly,
