This notebook contains notes on travel natural history observations and collecting, particularly regarding birds. Nelson describes birds, fish, and mammal fossils (mammoth and bison) he observes and collects as well as the geology of the locations he visits. Other locations include but are not limited to Eschscholtz Bay, Captain's Bay, and "Vancouver Island". Weather conditions were recorded along with temperatures. Numerous sketches are included.
