Martin H. Moynihan - Field notes, Andean Birds, Colombia, 1962-65
About the Project
Could you name a species of bird that makes its home in the Andes, the longest continental mountain range in the world? Explore the Andes mountains and its birds through Martin H. Moynihan's field book. Moynihan, an animal behaviorist and later Director and Senior Scientist at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, took these notes in Colombia during 1962-65. His observations include elevations and weather conditions recorded as he traveled through the Andes, alongside descriptions of the birds he found (with some beautiful sketches!).
Join other volunteers in transcribing Moynihan's field notes and experience a first-hand account of a trek through the Andes!
