Abstract

The notebook documents the field work of Russ Greenberg in the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico, February 28 - March 22, 1990. Entries are often dated, sometimes headed with location information (e.g. numbered tree or transect) and description of weather, followed with bird observations including common name, appearance, sex, measurements, time of day, and feeding. There appears to be more than one creator (possibly John Sterling). Locations include Puerto Morelo Botanical Gardens.
