Second Atlas of Breeding Birds in Pennsylvania: A Review by an Atlas Novice
APRIL 2, 2013
A breeding bird atlas is a special kind of book. For the nature lovers and birders who participate in breeding bird surveys, the atlas represents hours, often hundreds of hours, of volunteer time spent within a community of citizen scientists doing what they love, observing birds. So, when Corey and Mike asked if I wanted to review the Second Atlas of Breeding Birds in Pennsylvania , I jumped at the chance to write about this unique type of scientific reference book.
