Abstract

One of the most interesting of the recent additions to the Ornithological Collection is a semi-albino example of Dacelo gigas procured at "Thirribir," Boggabri, New South Wales, by Mr. F. J. Parks during the month of June, and which has been presented by that gentleman to the Trustees. As the bird was received in the flesh and is in perfect plumage, I have taken the opportunity of describing it.

General colour above and below pure white;
