Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center
The New Mexico Breeding Bird Atlas Project
In the summer of 2000, atlas volunteers worked 24 blocks and information was provided on another 13 blocks. These volunteers reported 1110 observations involving 194 species in 34 habitats. Of the total, 327 observations confirmed breeding, 191 indicated probable breeding, and 203 observations suggested possible breeding. Volunteers contributed approximately 325 hours of bird observations. In addition, atlasers contributed more than 145 hours and 4,280 miles in transportation to and from their blocks.
