Atlas of the Breeding Birds of the Upper Cumberland Region: A Summary of Distribution and Abundance Data for 132 Species Breeding Birds Recorded during Forays Conducted in the Upper Cumberland Region

 

This atlas will eventually comprise a collection of more than 3000 maps displaying the distribution and abundance of the breeding birds of the Upper Cumberland Region of Kentucky and Tennessee. Currently (7 September 2017), 2140 maps are available.

During 26 breeding bird forays conducted in the Upper Cumberland Region (UCR) from 2008 to 2016 (relevant counties listed in Table 1), 132 species (Tables 2 and 3) were detected. During the 16 forays conducted in the Tennessee portion of the UCR, 127 breeding species (and 22 nonbreeding species) were detected (Table 2), 74.7% of the 170 breeding species that were reported during the Tennessee Breeding Bird Atlas project (19861991) (Nicholson 1997).  During the 10 forays conducted in the Kentucky portion of the UCR, 123 breeding species (and 11 nonbreeding species) were detected (Table 3), 79.9% of the 154 breeding species that were reported during the Kentucky Breeding Bird Atlas project (19851991) (Palmer-Ball 1996).

    Maps displaying the current foray data by county and by subregion for each breeding species are or will eventually be accessible at species accounts found in Birds of the Upper Cumberland Region of Kentucky and Tennessee for each species listed in Table 2 (Tennessee portion of UCR) and Table 3 (Kentucky portion of UCR); simply click on the species names in those tables to be directed to the species account for each species; then scroll down to the section of the species account dealing with Foray results and click on the name of any county or subregion that is underlined and an active link; currently (7 September 2017), the most complete set of maps for a breeding species detected during the forays is for Red-eyed Vireo.
