Field notes document the work of James Lynch in Fort Pierce, Florida, during April 26 - 29, 1993. The purpose of the trip was to find out if the parasite numbers are tied in an obvious way to bird and mammal numbers (e.g. do snails show a greater probability of infection where colonial waterbirds aggregate). The loose sheets are dated, headed with location information or route, followed by narrative style entries that list travel details, description of work completed, interactions with colleagues, hand drawn maps with notations, observations of wildlife (insects, birds, mammals), Smithsonian tag numbers, notes on the bird's impoundment, and census results. There is a copy of a map with bird counts listed. Also contains the publication, Recent Ornithological literature, no. 74.
