Alexander Wetmore records notes relating to the spring bird migration he observed in the Verdigris Valley in Southern Kansas. He discusses how unusually early sighting dates of Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Black-throated Green Warbler, and Black and White Warbler were, compared to notes of other observers in the Mississippi valley. On the back of the 2-page document is a note stating, "class exercise, Alex Wetmore, College Rhetoric 9:00 am, November 21, 1905" and additionally "I, Exceedingly interesting."
