The entries consist of the common name (occasionally followed by the Latin name) of the species Williams observed, with information about how many of each species he saw or how many specimens he shot, as well as the occasional note regarding weather conditions. There are also the occasional notes regarding other creatures aside from birds - snakes, some reptiles and amphibians, and insects.
