Eike - Field notes, 1950 - 1953
About the Project
James Eike kept detailed records of the birds he observed throughout his life, even up to the weeks before he died. This set of his notes captures what he saw and heard in the early 1950’s. Unlike his later notes, these are more descriptive including what he was doing and the types of songs and species behavior he observed. His work continues to be recognized by the Virginia Society of Ornithologists by the James Eike Service Award. Join other digital volunteers to transcribe this part of Eike’s many field notes.
