Abstract: Details of the unpublished notes made by John Macoun during his 1890 field trip to the West Kootenay region of British Columbia are presented. When cross-referenced to information published in Macoun’s three volume Catalogue of Canadian Birds (1900–1904), a total of 78 species are mentioned, of which 76 are considered sufficiently documented for this area. Included are the first provincial records for Barn Owl and Red-headed Woodpecker, which are discussed.
