Fields notes are comprised of species accounts for loons, shorebirds, waterfowl and other aquatic birds observed in Alaska. Labeled as covering Gavia Stellata - Calidris ruficollis, the observations were recorded by Holmes while working on a shorebird project in collaboration with the Arctic Research Laboratory (which in 1967 became the Naval Arctic Research Laboratory) in Barrow, Alaska. Holmes wrote the field notes during his doctoral studies under Frank A. Pitelka at the Museum of Vertebrate...

The species accounts describe behavior of Calidris alpina and include original sketches by Holmes. C. Alpina is predominately referred to as Erolia alpina. Molting observations organized by catalog number are recorded beginning on page 192. The observations were recorded by Holmes while working on a shorebird project in collaboration with the Arctic Research Laboratory (which in 1967 became the Naval Arctic Research Laboratory) in Barrow, Alaska. Holmes wrote the field notes during his doctoral...
