He made various excursions in Saxony, Slavonia, and Bulgaria, and among several papers on European birds prepared a "Catalogue of the Species of Birds Observed in the Kingdom of Saxony," which was issued by the Ornithological Society of Dresden in 1903. In 1903 he spent nearly five months in Iceland, collecting specimens and notes which resulted in "Contribution to the Knowledge of the Avifauna of Iceland" ("Beitrag zur Kenntnis der Vogelwelt Islands"), Berlin, 1904.
