The second Virginia Breeding Bird Atlas (VABBA2) is a survey of all bird species breeding in the state. Data collected will help map the distribution and status of Virginia’s breeding bird community in order to better inform our natural resource and conservation decisions. The VABBA2 is a citizen science project, with volunteers conducting most of the key data collection.
The Audubon Society of Northern Virginia has conducted the Northern Virginia Bird Survey for over 20 years, and has been discovering some positive population trends, as well as some that are unnerving.
