In 1964, Roger St. Hilaire organized a trip to the West Indies with the support of the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology. His research focused on the feeding and foraging habits of tropical birds endemic to Trinidad. Birds collected on this trip were deposited at the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology. While collecting in Trinidad, St. Hilaire began the volume, and began numbering specimens beginning with no. 1. Through correspondence with the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, he was informed that he already...
