Bird lists of birds Gabrielson observed and collected from 8 January to 24 December 1922; 21 January to 20 September 1923; 19 April to 20 April 1924; 10 January to 9 December 1926; 11 January to 6 December 1927; 1 January to 19 May 1928; 22 February to 29 December 1929; 22 February to 11 December 1930; and 3 June to 27 December 1931. Locations include various locations in Oregon (and perhaps other states). Some locations include Multnomah County, Klamath, Tom River, Deschutes, Netarts and Wilson River, and Lake County. Notes include quantities seen and comments about abundance or commonality. From 1926, the notes become more descriptive and narrative including descriptions of surrounding vegetation. From 1931, the notes become more or less a daily journal. Some notes at the end of the diary entitled "Bird Damage" include notes about bird damage to corn, rice, and perhaps other crops and other notes about bird issues in the area.
