Arizona Bird Field Data Resources



This site contains collected images, sound recordings, and explanatory text about Arizona birds. Most of the material has been gathered during work on the Arizona Breeding Bird Atlas project (ABBA) administered by Arizona Game and Fish. A collection is usually a sound recording or photograph, and some text, that explains the significance of the material presented. Sometimes both photos and sound recordings are included in the same collection. This copyrighted material may be freely distributed for non-commercial purposes so long as, and all the authors of the material, are credited with its production. Commercial users must check with us to verify that the material can be used by them before it is redistributed.
