> The first and largest comprehensive baseline survey of Oregon's birds --
> the Oregon Breeding Bird Atlas (BBA) -- can now be viewed for FREE on the
> Oregon Birding Association's web site. The web version is just as
> interactive as the CD in which it was originally published, and contains a
> map for every breeding species, information on habitat use, the complete
> database, statistical analysis, and much more. The BBA consisted of field
> surveys by over 800 volunteers during the period from 1995 through 1999.
> If you were birding in Oregon then and were a volunteer, your name is in
> it. Kit Larsen volunteered hundreds of hours to create the original CD,
> but now that few new computers have CD drives, we recently decided the BBA
> should be moved online where it is more discoverable and accessible to a
> wider audience. Michael Medina graciously volunteered his programming
> expertise to move the entire contents of the CD onto the OBA website, with
> support from Diana Byrne. Species names have been
> updated. We would appreciate this post being mentioned in local Audubon
> group newsletters and on birding listservs. Here is the link:
