Most Recent Update: 13 October 2007.
(1) This is an archived version of the 1966 - 2006 analysis. Remember the disclaimer! Some interactive portions of the program are no longer supported, and may not be fully operational.
(2) There are probably a few species naming issues that lead to empty result pages.
(3) Maps (e.g., distribution maps) have not yet been updated with 2006 data. Older versions are still available, so please note the time periods covered by each set of maps.
(4) Some species are grouped for analysis. These are indicated on the selection lists.
(5) Data for annual index graphs are now listed below the graphics in the regional and species-specific trend results.
(6) Credibility codes for trend estimates updated on 6/03/2005 in response to user comments.
(7) Earlier versions of the web site have been archived, and are accessible via links.
(8) Trend results are now highlighted to indicate significant population declines or increases.
(9) Analysis revision (10/13/2007): Annual indices revised for BBS strata, and summary display of gull results fixed.
Summary information on population change by region and time period
This program allows you to display trends for 3 time intervals, by species. Indices are provided as links from the species names

These are relative abundance maps, estimated over the interval 1994-2003.
These are maps of population change, based on the 1966-2003 interval.
