Abstract

Five pages of notes list birds Mearns collected in the Philippines in 1907. Four pages record birds collected at Haights in-the-pines, Benguet, July 1907. The words "carded 1908" were later added to these notes, perhaps indicating that card files of these collections were made. Also included is one page of collector numbers of birds collected on a trip to the Haights-in-the-oaks, 20 July to 4 August 1907; collector numbers 15350 to 15480 are included.
