Predicted Relative Abundance in Bird Conservation Region 11

These maps, derived from our species-habitat models, indicate predicted relative species abundance within a Bird Conservation Region (BCR).
The colors in the map represent the predicted species bird count if a Breeding Bird Survey route were centered at that location.
