Information from Breeding Birds of North Dakota, by Robert E. Stewart. Courtesy of his family.

Legend: For each township, filled squares indicate that nests or dependent young were recorded during 1950-1972. Filled triangles indicate that territorial males or pairs were recorded during a breeding season in 1950-1972. Open squares indicate that nests or dependent young were recorded prior to 1950. Open triangles indicate that territorial males or pairs were recorded during a breeding season prior to 1950.

Disclaimer: The taxonomic treatment in this report follows the AOU Check-list of North American Birds, fifth edition (1957), and the subsequent thirty-second supplement (1973), except as modified by changes proposed by Mayr and Short (1970). The maps shown were created by manually coding the symbols for each species and township, based on the maps in Stewart (1975), and creating new maps from those data. The new maps were checked for errors, but there is a possibility that some errors remain.

Species Information -- Each species entry contains up to three types of information:

1. Photos -- Entries with photos are marked with this icon.
2. All entries have distribution maps and textual descriptions.
