Data Identification
Abstract: These are the locations of Iowa's Second Breeding Bird Atlas. Blocks are 3 by 3 miles in size. Some of the blocks are the same as those surveyed in the first BBA, some are new. Some represent 'grid blocks' (the 22 section in every other township) and some represent 'habitat blocks' (blocks containing public land with either grass, water, or forest habitat).
Purpose: This digital, geographically referenced data set was developed by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources to carry out agency responsibilities related to management, protection, and development of Iowa's natural resources.
