Abstract

This field book by Joe T. Marshall contains a number of separate sets of field notes from different dates, all ranging from 1932-1937 and dealing with birds. Some of these notes are dated journal-style entries which describe different bird species collected and observed. Others are lists of species observed at a certain time or certain place. Some notes include specific information such as sex and measurements. There is a bird census with times, and a color coded list of distribution for the birds of Yosemite.
