Abstract

This item consists of two field journals and species accounts by Joe T. Marshall, detailing his field work with birds and mammals. The first journal dates from 1979, while the second dates from 1980.

Information included are times, altitudes, weather conditions, terrain and forest descriptions, and bird lists with species. Following each journal are species accounts, generally organized by species and containing dates and specific localities, as well as accounts of different occasions of observing and collecting animals. There are a number of animal sketches, as well as some sketched maps and bird checklists.
