Perry County is located in west-central Alabama. Although some sites in the county have received the attention of birders seeking wintering sparrows, and Wood Storks and kites during post-breeding dispersal in July, there is relatively little information about the breeding birds of Perry County. Therefore, a quantitative study of the breeding birds of Perry County was undertaken in June 2003 in conjunction with Breeding Bird Atlas surveying efforts. This study is a continuation of the work that began in 2000 to gain a better understanding of the breeding birds in Alabama, especially in counties that have received very little attention in the past (Jackson 2000, Gardella 2003).
