North American Breeding Bird Survey Maps for Canada
This collection houses PDFs of active BBS route maps, which are grouped by province or territory. These maps allow BBS volunteers in Canada to easily locate the start of their route, and to navigate the official route.
The BBS is jointly coordinated by Environment Canada's Canadian Wildlife Service and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Patuxent Wildlife Research Center. Any use of BBS data for Canada should acknowledge the hundreds of skilled volunteers in Canada who have participated in the BBS over the years, those who have served as provincial or territorial coordinators for the BBS, and the Boreal Avian Modelling Project (BAM; www.borealbirds.ca), whose collaboration was invaluable to the creation of the BBS route and stop location dataset.
General information on the BBS in Canada (e.g., the data collection methods, survey coverage, etc.) can be found here:
Current Canadian BBS trend results and annual indices, as well as detailed descriptions of the information provided in these estimates and the statistical methods used, are available through the Canadian BBS results website:
Raw BBS data are publicly accessible through the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center's data portal:
