Alexander Wetmore - Field Notes, August - December 1904

About the Project

At 18 years of age, Alexander Wetmore was still a year away from college, but he had been observing and studying birds seriously since his early teens. His first paper "My Experience with a Red-headed Woodpecker" was published in the bi-monthly magazine Bird-lore four years before he penned these field notes. They are a combination of careful collection and observation notes interspersed with journal style entries describing Wetmore's activities, the weather and other conditions, and people with whom he interacted. Join other digital volunteers in transcribing this set of field notes of this young ornithologist.
