Abstract

The notebook documents the work of Russ Greenberg in Jamaica, during January 1984. The entries are dated and headed with location. Some entries are narrative in style. They describe routes traveled, sometimes weather, vegetation (including height of trees), lists of birds observed, and their behavior. Other entries are primarily bird counts (common name, number, and sex) or tables of data.
