Canadian Atlas of Bird Banding
This atlas series gives results of bird banding in Canada from 1991 to 1995 for birds other than waterfowl. For each species, the banding effort is summarized, along with the number of recoveries. Maps show movements of birds between where they were banded and where they were found. These maps are useful to help understand migration patterns for many bird species in North America.
The atlas has been published in four volumes, divided by species group:
- Canadian Atlas of Bird Banding. Volume 1: Doves, cuckoos, and hummingbirds through passerines
The first volume covers small land birds (passerines and near passerines), including song birds, doves, cuckoos, hummingbirds, woodpeckers.
- Canadian Atlas of Bird Banding. Volume 2: Seabirds
The second volume deals with seabirds (albatrosses, petrels, gannets, cormorants, pelicans, jaegers, gulls, terns, and auks).
- Canadian Atlas of Bird Banding. Volume 3: Raptors and waterbirds
The third volume covers raptors (hawks and owls), vultures and various waterbirds (loons, grebes, cranes, herons, and rails).
