Transcription Notes:
Checked Latin species names, left Vernon's original spelling, anything I'm not sure of is in [[?]]. Various notes on more difficult latin names are below. Otocoris = old species name for the Prairie Horned Lark Amodramus = Vernon probably means Ammodramus Aegelais phoeniceus = Vernon probably means Agelaius phoeniceus [[marotimus?]] = Vernon's m's sometimes look like w's. See how he writes Amorpha below.
