Final results of the Second Pennsylvania Breeding Bird Atlas
Join Bob Mulvihill, Project Coordinator and Co-editor of the Second Pennsylvania Breeding Bird Atlas, on
June 5, 2013 as he describes the process of
writing, editing, and publishing the Second Atlas of Breeding Birds in Pennsylvania. He'll highlight some of the important findings of the study,
including notable positive and negative trends in our breeding bird populations, and he'll help us imagine the Third Pennsylvania Breeding Bird
Atlas, just eleven years away!
The meeting will be held at the Phipps Garden Center, 1059 Shady Avenue in Shadyside. Doors will
open at 6:30 PM for socializing, a
business meeting will begin at 7:30, followed immediately by the
program. The usual snacks will be available. Ample parking is available along Beechwood Boulevard.

publishing previews of the current issue of Pennsylvania Birds online, which will consist of
the cover, table of contents, and a featured article. Now anyone who does not subscribe or
perhaps does not even know about PSO can actually see a little bit of what they've been
missing, and hopefully be encouraged to join PSO! Read more from Geoff about
Items to Note!
