Transcription Notes:
Checked species names, kept Vernon's spelling, anything I'm unsure of is in [[?]] (and there are a LOT on this page!) See notes below as we've managed to work out most but [[Areautrautus melanoteucus?]] -@siobhanleachman The wonderful @Roswilkes has suggested Aeronautes melanoleucus as a probable species for the [[Areautrautus melanoteucus?]] we are unsure of. As we are not quite sure exactly what Vernon wrote have left it in [[?]] though. -@siobhanleachman Clypeata spatulata - can't confirm species Zonotrichia leucophras=Zonotrichia leucophrys "Surber" could possibly be Thaddeus Serber? https://books.google.co.nz/books?id=47sXAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA86-IA29&dq=Surber+naturalist&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0CCEQ6AEwAWoVChMIsavvwdqEyQIVwqOUCh37vALc#v=onepage&q=Surber%20naturalist&f=false More info here http://wwn.inhs.illinois.edu/~ksc/Malacologists/SurberT.html
