Sinopsis: This insightful volume describes the results of the largest natural history survey ever conducted in Colorado. It reports the results of field work by over 1,200 "atlasers" who spent eight years gathering data on Colorado breeding birds in 1,745 blocks three miles on a side, one in each topographic map in the state.

Two-page Species Accounts, by 30 atlaser-authors, describe habitat use, breeding, and distribution of 252 bird species, and supplemental accounts report on 12 other rare species, found breeding in the state from 1987-1994. It also contains chapters on Colorado ecosystems, post-settlement changes to breeding birds, Colorado ornithologists, and the Colorado Bird Atlas project--its methods and results. The book contains over 1,000 maps, charts, graphs, and tables.

Cover-artist Radeaux contributed over 300 illustrations. A 16-page folio of color photographs shows Colorado habitats, nests, nestlings, and fledglings.

Contraportada: "A giant leap forward in documenting the breeding distribution of North American avifauna" -- Chandler S. Robbins, Patuxent Wildlife Research Center, Laurel, Maryland.

"Stunning, yet with authoritative and vital information on the present and past distribution of Colorado breeding birds as well as data on the habitats they use and their breeding practices." Gregory Butcher, former Executive Director, American Birding Association, now Editor, Birder's World.

"Wildlife managers and environmental consultants will find basic data about Colorado species that can help them make decisions on land use planning, conservation measures, and environmental analysis." -- Ronald A. Ryder, Emeritus Professor of Wildlife Biology, Colorado State University.

"The maps are fascinating. To see the spectacular culmination of the indefatigable efforts of the organizers of this project is truly a thrill." -- J. V. Remsen, Curator of Birds and Professor of Biological Sciences, Museum of Science, Louisiana State University.
