Data Set Name Description Theme Metadata
Breeding Bird Atlas (2000-2005) Depicts the distribution of breeding bird species in New York State, as recorded during the 2000-2005 Breeding Bird Atlas surveys. The Breeding Bird Atlas is a presence/absence survey. While a record of a species in a block is highly suggestive of its breeding presence there the lack of a record does not guarantee absence of the species as a breeder in the block. Atlasers were directed to work in a block until 76 species had been recorded; therefore the list of species reported breeding within a block was not intended to be comprehensive.  n/a n/a
