New York Breeding Bird Atlas III - Join the Fun!
Thank you for being a part of the New York birding community. Your checklists power research and conservation throughout the state and beyond, and 2021 brings another great way to enjoy birds: the third New York Breeding Bird Atlas!
WHAT IS A BREEDING BIRD ATLAS?
Breeding Bird Atlases (or BBAs) are dedicated efforts to understand the populations of breeding birds in a specific region. The information collected is invaluable for guiding bird conservation. In New York, the atlas runs for 5 years (2020-2024), and year 2 is beginning now!
HOW CAN YOU JOIN THE FUN?
All you have to do is go birding and report your sightings to eBird. The NY BBA III is fully integrated with eBird, so with a couple minor changes, you're essentially already atlasing!
There are three things to keep in mind to be a part of the atlas:
If you have any more questions, please come join the Atlas Year 2 Kick-off event on 7 April from 6:30-8:30pm! This event will talk about the atlas progress, goals, and what’s on tap for this year.
We can’t wait to have you join the team of the more than 1780 atlasers who have already contributed observations on over 200 breeding species. We’ll see you out there.
