Breeding Bird Atlas

Welcome

Swallow-tailed Kite Watercolor - Cover ArtWelcome to the Florida Breeding Bird Atlas! The Atlas project attempted to record the breeding distributions of all bird species in the state during 1986-1991. The Atlas project was a collaborative effort of Audubon of Florida, the Florida Ornithological Society, and the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission. More than 1,880 participants, most of them volunteers, were involved in conducting surveys and compiling data. 196 species were confirmed breeding, and another 19 species were found to be probable or possible breeders in the state.
