Excerpt from Annual Report of the New Jersey State Museum: Including a Report of the Birds of New Jersey Their Nests and Eggs and Notes in New Jersey Fishes, Amphibians and Reptiles, 1908

In presenting our annual report for 1908 we are carrying out the plan laid out by the Commission and the Curator, to make the Museum reports on the same plan as the Museum was established - purely educational.

This report treats of the "Birds of New Jersey, their Nests and Eggs." We feel that no subject could be taken for the report that would be more interesting and beneficial in the cause of education than this. It will educate the children to love and protect their winged friends, not destroy them.

The subject-matter of "The Birds, their Nests and Eggs," has been prepared by Mr. Witmer Stone, Curator of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia, a gentleman having a national reputation as a naturalist. His authority on this subject is surpassed by none. The subject-matter has been presented in such a manner that it will be interesting as well as instructive.

The part in our last Museum report of 1907, "The Mammals of New Jersey," was contributed by Mr. Stone. The report has proven a great success.

To the Bird Report arc added some notes of the New Jersey Fishes, Amphibians and Reptiles by Henry W. Fowler.
The Museum reports have been sent to all of the New Jersey public libraries, school libraries, colleges, museums, historical societies, the State officials and those interested in natural history.
