From the posting on Los Angeles Audubon Society:
This 660-page hardcover compendium addresses 228 species found with evidence of breeding during the 1995–1999 Atlas survey period plus 18 additional historical, island-breeding, and post-Atlas breeding species. Our Atlas findings are based on over 28,000 records provided by over 300 volunteer observers contributing more than 10,000 hours of field effort. The authors have supplemented this information by consulting extensive ornithological and paleontological literature, extracting data from over 5600 egg-set records, and analyzing trend data from eight county BBS routes and eight county CBC circles in the attempt to provide as comprehensive a picture of Los Angeles County’s breeding avifauna as possible.

    Is it now OK to wear the BBA T-shirt I got for donating to the preparation of the Atlas a few years ago? Thanks to all for the hard work. Dave Weeshoff

      Dave: Wear it proudly, assuming it still fits. It may have shrunk over the decades. Mine died at the ripe old age of 120. (T-shirts age at the rate of 8 years for each human year.) Chuck
