The Second Atlas brings knowledge of the area's nesting birds into the twenty—first century and identifies those species and habitats most in need of conservation.
Species accounts, each with a stunning color photograph, provide detailed coverage of the habitats, biology, and relative abundance of Mid—Atlantic nesting birds. Up—to—date maps reflect changes in their breeding ranges and distributions over the past two decades. Of perhaps greatest value, the atlas provides comparative analyses with data from the first statewide survey done in the 1980s.
Treasured by birders -- and an invaluable reference for ornithologists, conservationists, and land—use planners -- this book will significantly influence our understanding and management of avian species in the region for the next decade.
