Field trip at NYSOA Annual Meeting 2019, hosted by The Catskill Center

When New Year’s Day arrived this year, New York State’s third Breeding Bird Atlas was off and running! Knowing the breeding codes and how to use them is a key skill for every atlaser. This month, we bring your Julie Hart’s second article on Breeding Codes, which focuses on the Possible and Probable categories. Here are links for the article in PDF and MS Word formats:
