Not so long ago, in 1958, Stewart & Robbins published Maryland’s first comprehensive, detailed account of when bird species occur in our state and what regions they’re found in. Only 2 decades later there was an information revolution — MD’s 1st “Breeding Bird Atlas” (1983-1987) — when nearly a thousand birders and wildlife scientists joined together in a fun, challenging endeavor to vastly refine our understanding of where it is that birds live in the state. Join us in this seminar as we compare results from those earlier works to the results of MD’s 2nd Breeding Bird Atlas (2002-2006), exploring the tales of avian winners and losers and how those stories are influencing conservation planning. And you won’t want to miss this grand opportunity, just as excitement is building for MD’s 3rd Breeding Bird Atlas (2020-2024), to hear predictions of bird changes that may come from one of MD’s foremost experts on statewide bird distributions!
