Abstract

This field book contains field notes on birds taken from 21 April 1960 to 10 October 1960. Notes contain lists of various birds spotted in Virginia. The majority of notes probably were taken on North Tuckahoe street Falls Church. Many notes were taken "in yard", probably referring to Eike's own yard. Other locations may be included. Notes occasionally include weather and temperature information, quantity, time spotted, and the sex of the birds.
