June is an important month for the North American Breeding Bird Survey, which monitors the North American bird population.Â The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service’s Division of Migratory Birds also monitors the paths birds follow during their seasonal migrations.
Plenty of Georgians are involved with the North American Breeding Bird Survey and related birding activities, for good reason:Â Georgia is a great state for birds.
You can view many more publications about birds in Georgia at the current display The State of the Birds, including Have You Seen This Bird? Painted Bunting and Georgia’s state bird, Brown Thrasher, Toxostoma Rufum. Just come by the Reference Desk on the 2nd floor of Odum Library to view the display and learn more about birds and other government information on wildlife and the environment from the Government Documents collection.
