State by BCR

On this page, you can access recently completed bird habitat assessments for State x Bird Conservation Regions of interest to you. These State x BCR Assessments, and accompanying Summaries, were developed to serve as a “stepped-down” version of the 2007 Joint Venture (JV) Implementation Plan. They include lists of JV “focal” species used for planning that represent land covers, or bird habitat associations, important to suites of birds occurring in the JV Region. Bird habitat (cover type) conservation objectives at the State x BCR scale are included in assessments as well as the amount and location of land currently under protection. Also included are primary modes of recent land cover conversion and general bird management implications based on how existing land cover relates to JV-established bird habitat objectives.
