Format: Hardcover
Arizona has been a dream destination for birders and ornithologists for a century and a quarter. Since the publication of the first Lane guide more than 30 years ago, traveling birders have benefited from the availability of a number of "birding Baedekers" for finding the state's many specialties. But what of birders who want to go beyond simply listing the Arizona rarities? With Phillips et al.'s excellent monograph on the distribution and status of Arizona's birds more than forty years old, and the most recent annotated checklist pushing 25, local birders and visitors alike have often found it difficult to place their sightings in context.
Now come Corman and Wise-Gervais, and their corps of well over 250 volunteer 'atlasers', with the first major reference work on the state's birds to appear for a long generation. Well designed and richly illustrated, the new Arizona Breeding Bird Atlas (or, to use the faintly discoish acronym, ABBA) fully deserves the place of honor it will occupy on birders' bookshelves, next to the magnum opus of Phillips, Marshall, and Monson.
Field work for the ABBA was begun in 1993 and completed at the turn of this century. Given the size of the state and the low number of observers available in all but the most densely populated areas, a system of "priority" blocks was developed for the surveys; the difficulties and the sampling methodologies developed to overcome them are clearly described in the book's introductory matter, as are the criteria and definitions used to document each species' breeding status.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By David A. Rintoul on July 11, 2013
Format: Hardcover
Arizona is the destination of choice for many birders in North America, since many of the breeding birds in that state are not found anywhere else north of Mexico. So the appearance of this excellent and wonderfully illustrated atlas is a boon to birdwatchers. But it is also an excellent resource for ornithologists, with a 19-page bibliography and useful appendices including one that documents the frequency and species distribution of nests parasitized by Brown-headed Cowbirds. As with all of the recent spate of breeding bird atlases, it is the product of many hours of volunteer effort, painstakingly collected and scrutinized by the editors. The maps are large, and the photographs of many of these birds are unique and artistic (including the Purple Martins perched on a saguaro cactus). It will be useful for decades to come, and will also serve as a benchmark for the next atlas project to document the changes in the avifauna of this popular (and increasingly populated) state. (This review is excerpted from my review in Choice, the review journal of the American Library Association.)

Great source of information on where and when over 300 bird species breed in Arizona. Also good brief descriptions of the birds behavior and habitat. This is not an identification book.
