Naturalist Nights | The Second Colorado Breeding Bird Atlas Project
The Second Colorado Breeding Bird Atlas book, published in 2016, presents comparative data for 262 breeding bird species in Colorado. When repeated at regular intervals, breeding bird atlases can detect changes in avian species distribution, phenology, and habitat use over time and may serve as important components of large-scale bird conservation strategies. The second publication marked a 20-year interval from the first Colorado Breeding Bird Atlas, documenting current species distribution, habitat use, and phenology. Lynn Wickersham, who coordinated and helped author and edit the publication, will share insights into the project. Lynn will also discuss resulting data, which points to possible range expansions for some species, range contractions for others, and discusses current threats and other conservation concerns for Colorado’s diverse avifauna.
** Lynn will also be presenting on Wednesday, February 1 at 5:30 at Carbondale's Third Street Center. **
