Protecting the state’s birds requires that
we know where they are.
The Connecticut Bird Atlas will map all species found in the state during both nesting and non-nesting seasons. From 2018-2020, we will be seeking the help of birdwatchers 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.
