One of the main goals of the California Partners In Flight (CalPIF) Bird Conservation Plan endeavor is to document the health and status
of bird populations across the entire state. To this end, PRBO has developed a
database of CalPIF bird monitoring sites and served as a repository for species breeding status information
for the entire state.

Disclaimer: these maps are not comprehensive
and are not intended for use as definitive range maps. In particular,
study areas do not necessarily match a given species' range,
so red dots do not necessarily mean that a species should breed
at a given location. Further, several data sources exist which
are not represented here. We encourage users interested in species
distributions to consult a wide range of references, including
(but not limited to) the Birds of North America series, county
breeding bird atlases, and the California Natural Diversity
