Transcription Notes:
First pass on this. Latin species names need googling to check but keep Vernon's original spelling. A few names were not found. Names all Googled. Left incorrect spellings as written. All found except those bracketed [[?]] 27/2 Have had another go with a little bit of success, see below notes -@siobhanleachman . [[Coephleus?]] pileolatus - C Hart Merrium (colleague of Vernon's) mentions a bird - pusillus pileolatus so possibly Vernon means that? Corvus is the genus for crows. What looks like Denclroica, I think is Vernon's bad writing and is actually Dendroica. He mentions it and spells it correctly in other parts of project.
