Martin H. Moynihan - Field notes, Andean Birds, Colombia, 1962-65, Vol. 2

About the Project

The Cordillera Central range is the highest of the mountains that make up the Colombian Andes, reaching heights of over 17,000 feet. What types of birds would you expect to find all the way up there?

Explore the Cordillera range and the rest of the Andes mountains with Martin H. Moynihan's field book. Moynihan, an animal behaviorist and later Director and Senior Scientist at the Smithsonian Tropical Institute, took these notes in Colombia during 1962-65. His observations include elevations recorded as he traveled through the Andes, alongside descriptions of the birds he found.

Join other volunteers in transcribing Moynihan's field notes and experience a first-hand account of a trek through the Andes mountains!
