As some of you know, I have spent the last 8+ years as Statewide Project
Manager of Colorado's second Breeding Bird Atlas project. During the past few
years, I've spent countless hours writing and editing our end project, The
Second Colorado Breeding Bird Atlas, a 750+ page book documenting distribution,
habitat use, and breeding phenology of Colorado birds. The book follows in the
footsteps of Colorado's first Breeding Bird Atlas and documents changes in
breeding bird populations across a 20-yr interval. It is a landmark achievement
in Colorado ornithology and will be used by wildlife managers for long-term
bird conservation projects and and management. At this time, we are nearing the
point of delivering the completed manuscript to the printer. Co-publishers
Colorado Bird Atlas Partnership and Colorado Parks and wildlife seek to
pre-sell as many copies as possible and implement a mass distribution upon book
launch. The proceeds from the sale of the book will go directly to meeting the
costs of publication, with any amount leftover saved for the initiation of
Atlas II (in 2027).
I am writing to ask for your support for my life's most important achievement.
If you have any interest in birds or simply wish to support me, please consider
placing a pre-order. The link to pre-order a book is
www.cobreedingbirdatlasii.org/buy.html . While you're there, check out the
amazing Atlas database website. We hope to send the book to the printer about a
month or so, and from there it may take a couple of months until the book
launch. I look forward to closing this challenging but rewarding chapter in my
life and to move on to other endeavors. Thank you for your consideration, and I
hope to see many of you soon. Please send this along to any other friends you
thing might be interested in the Atlas.
Have a wonderful 4th of July!
