The Atlas of Breeding Birds in New York State, Edited by Robert F. Andrle and Janet R. Carrol (Cornell University Press, 1988) provided a comprehensive benchmark for the status of breeding birds in New York State in the years 1980 to 1985. Since this time, range expansions and contractions for certain species and population changes for others have, in part, prompted another census that will lead to publication of the "Second Atlas of Breeding Birds in New York State". The field efforts will officially commence in January, 2000 and continue through the year 2004.
