Recommended Posts

The final "Atlas of Breeding Colonial Waterbirds in the Interior
Western United States" is completed and available on the Internet.  As
a reminder of how this all fits together, the final product from the
Western Colonial Waterbird Survey (WCWS) is this "Atlas of Breeding
Colonial Waterbirds in the Interior Western United States" (Atlas).
The Atlas for the three Pacific States is in progress, contact
Michelle McDowell: michelle_mcdowell@fws.gov for more information.

This Atlas consists of two parts:  the Maps for all the sites surveyed
during the WCWS and an Atlas data table.  In addition to this Atlas,
the final report includes a State database of the survey data.  All
data from the WCWS were entered into Microsoft EXCEL spreadsheets, one
for each state.  Each spreadsheet has three parts (sheets):  1)
Breeding birds; 2) Nonbreeding, if collected in that state; and 3)
historical data, if compiled for that state.

This final Atlas: the State maps, Atlas data tables and State
databases are described in "Cavitt, J.F., S.L. Jones, N.M. Wilson,
J.S. Dieni, T.S. Zimmerman, R.H. Doster and W.H. Howe. 2014. Atlas of
breeding colonial waterbirds in the interior western United States.
U.S. Department of the Interior, Fish and Wildlife Service, Denver,
Colorado" and are all available on the Internet from FWS:
