"An important early journal; Fowler was second in command in a party of 20 men under Hugh Glenn. They left Ft. Smith in September, 1821, and went along the Arkansas River, following approximately the route that later became the Santa Fe Trail in that region, to the site of present Pueblo, Colorado. They went on to Taos and returned east in 1822, following the Santa Fe Trail in part and mentioning seeing the tracks of Becknell's wagons."--Jack Rittenhouse. The footnotes by Elliott Coues add much information and perspective

Birds of the Colorado Valley : a repository of scientific and popular information concerning North American ornithology by Elliott Coues( Book )

27 editions published between 1878 and 2013 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This treatise may be regarded as complementary to the "Birds of the Northwest" (Misc. Pub. No. 3). It covers much ground not gone over in the latter work, in all that relates to the technicalities of the general subject, as well as to the particular life-histories of the birds composing the remarkable avian fauna of the Colorado Basin. As originally projected for publication in a different connection, the work consisted merely of a report upon the peculiar features of bird-life in the area under consideration, with biographies of the species not treated in the "Birds of the Northwest". But the author's resources have proved to be so largely in excess of the requirements of such a report that the work has outgrown the limits of a single volume, and become a full exposition of our present knowledge of the subject, by the incorporation of much technical matter concerning North American ornithology at large, hitherto the private possession of the author and now first made accessible to the public
Birds of the Northwest : a hand-book of the ornithology of the region drained by the Missouri River and its tributaries by Elliott Coues( Book )

This volume is based mainly on an unpublished report prepared by Coues in 1862 from the ornithological collections of F.V. Hayden and G.H. Trook taken during an expedition under Captain W.F. Raynolds, United States Engineers. The author preserved the "List of Specimens" tabulated in the original report, and extended the list with additional material from other collection trips in the West to compile what amounted to a "treatise on the Ornithology of the Western Territories," a desire expressed by F.V. Hayden to Coues
