    Excerpt from The Birds of the Republic of Panama, Vol. 2: Columbidae Pigeons to Picidae Woodpeckers

    The first section of this account of the avifauna of the Isthmus of Panama, published December 27, 1965, covered the 202 species in the 35 families from the Tinamidae (tinamous) to the Rynchopidae (skimmers). The 18 families in this second part include 208 species in the groups remaining in the systematic sequence to the great order of the Passeriformes, the perching birds. As in the first part, the indi vidual accounts include a summary of what is known of each species, based on personal observation and on the published records of others. A further season of field work, from January to March 1966, covered the Burica Peninsula in southwestern Chiriqui, an area not visited previously, and one from which little was known of its natural history. It was fortunate that the visit came at that time as forest cover there was being cleared rapidly for agriculture.

    Introductory paragraphs in the first volume outline brie¿y the physi cal features oi the Republic so these are not repeated here, except to note that with continued change in access to more remote areas, clear ing of forests proceeds with a rapidity alarming in its steady pressure in restriction of the native fauna and ¿ora. In this connection it is a pleasure to record the establishment of the National Park and Bio logical Reserve of Cerro Campana, an interesting region that marks the southern boundary of the mountain ¿ora and fauna of the high lands oi western Panama. With this important beginning it is hoped that other areas also may be set aside for the preservation of their natural features.

    Of equal interest and value is the action of the Ministerio de Agri cultura, Comercio e Industrias in its Decree No. 23 of January 30, 1967, which establishes protective measures for the conservation of the native fauna, with provision for the establishment of a National Commission concerned with these important matters.
