Connecticut Bird Atlas
The Connecticut Bird Atlas is a monumental conservation project that will map all bird species found in the state during both nesting and non-nesting seasons. From 2018-2020, volunteer birdwatchers will help to document the distribution, abundance, and breeding activities of birds at sites throughout the entire state. The resulting data will be used to document changes since the last comprehensive survey of the state’s birds (which happened in the early 1980s); to inform the State Wildlife Action Plan; and to determine priority areas for bird conservation and land protection.
To volunteer or join a mailing list to receive project updates, go to ctbirdatlas.org.
The Connecticut Bird Atlas is a joint project of the Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection Wildlife Division and the University of Connecticut, with major funding from Connecticut Ornithological Association, Audubon Connecticut, Connecticut Audubon Society, Great Hollow Nature Preserve and Ecological Research Center, Hartford Audubon Society, New Haven Bird Club, and the support of many other partners.
