A key to the symbols used on the page is available at https://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/page/45152876#page/73/mode/1up. Symbols should be replaced with bracketed text such as [in full song]. Separate dates and observations with a comma. Use a semicolon to separate dates.
Example: To describe observations on the first of a month where 5 birds were seen in flight, the written text would be a 1 with a superscript of 5 and a v below the 5, transcribed as [month] 1, 5 [in flight];
