Abstract:Summary.* 1 During the summer of 1949 separate expeditions visited the islands of Palma and Gomera in the Canary Islands. * 2 A survey of the birds was made, mainly of the Passerine species, to determine in which habitats they were found. * 3 The distributions of some of these species is discussed and, so far as possible, accounted for. * 4 Of 12 species common to Palma and Britain, five had calls which differed distinctly, while three, Fringilla coelebs, Parus caeruleus and Phyllosropus collybita, were strikingly different. * 5 A systematic list for the two islands is presented.
