Allen J. Duvall's compiled narrative notes on birds he collected and observed with Thomas D. Burleigh in Cuba in 1948 (circa March and April) and 1949 (circa January) and annotated list of species seen and collected. The narrative account is dated 14 to 29 March [1948?]. No years are given for these notes, but they are probably taken in March and April 1948 and January 1949. Localities include but are not limited to Pinar del Rio, Santo Tomas, Cojímar, Isle of Pines [Isla de la Juventud], and the Zapata swamp.
