> A couple of posts yesterday inquired about the timing of the Vermont
> Breeding Bird Atlas publication. So here's a brief update:
> We have raised most of the money need to make this publication happen,
> and will continue to seek the remaining needed funds.
> Species accounts are being written and reviewed, a process involving
> many steps, with drafts going back and forth between authors and
> internal and external reviewers. We have been compiling photos. If
> anyone is sitting on publication-quality photos and would like to donate
> permission for use in the atlas, please let me know. Additional chapters
> are planned but not started yet, and the final design/layout is yet to
> be tackled. Our current timeline has everything handed in to the
> publisher by the end of 2010. Then it's up to them!
> We will also provide a website with results and species accounts, but
> have not yet received expected funding for that component of the
> project. I am expecting we will be able to get something on the web by
> the end of this year, and then add to it gradually over time as we
> finalize more content. In the meantime, you can look up results from the
> recent atlas on the USGS Patuxent website.
> If you would like to be notified when the atlas publication becomes
> available, please send me an email....but I will certainly be putting
> the word out on the listserv.
