This map visually identifies the precise geographic location of each ornithological record in A Field Guide to Birds of Armenia (Adamian and Klem 1997). The location of each ornithological record was confirmed to previously unequaled accuracy using the satellite-based Global Positioning System (GPS) for locations not documented on maps. These records were used to prepare the species distribution maps in A Field Guide to Birds of Armenia. Armenia, a country the size of Belgium or Maryland, has an extraordinary 346 species of birds whereas, for comparison, the whole of Europe has 550 species and the area encompassed by the former Soviet Union has 750 species.
