Martin Moynihan - Atlapetes (Brush-finches) - Panama, Ecuador and Peru, 1958, 1960-1962

About the Project

Understanding biodiversity trends and the factors that influence them requires us first to develop an intimate knowledge about the species themselves. In these field notes, Dr. Martin Moynihan (1928-1996) documents his work studying brush-finches (atlapetes) in Panama, Ecuador and Peru. Over half a century later, ornithologists are still making discoveries, such as the Antioquia Brush-finch that was identified from museum specimens collected in 1971. It was not seen alive for the next 47 years until it was rediscovered in Colombia 2018. Join in with other digital volunteers to transcribe Dr. Moynihan's observations and make them more accessible for today's researchers.
