Puerto Rico Breeding Bird Atlas - Species Index

Using the links it is possible to view Distribution Maps for each species based on our study as far as we have progressed. WE HAVE NOT FINISHED.

These maps are displayed schematically as rectangular boxes, but they spatially reflect the hexagonal grid used in the study. A color in a box indicates a report of the presence of the species there with the darkest red indicating the best breeding evidence (see key). Lack of a symbol in a box may merely mean that no one has submitted a report from that hexagon. It is best to view these species maps with the Progress Map. Obviously, gaps shown in the Progress Map will be reflected in the species distribution maps. Nonetheless, the species maps are instructive, not only showing an emerging distribution pattern, but also showing where additional data should be sought in the field. Like all works in progress, some final editing will be necessary -- the viewer should be cautious in drawing premature conclusions.

The sole purpose of displaying these maps is to guide and improve our field work. These maps my not be plagiarized in any publication or presentation - all rights are reserved by the Puerto Rican Breeding Bird Atlas Project, and SOPI. We thank all those volunteers, professionals and organizations who have contributed data for these maps. We encourage others to volunteer and submit information to make these maps more complete.
