A follow-up to yesterday’s post.
Presented in the two maps below you will find specie count representations for all of the data in eBird for the state of Oregon as of 21 January 2013.
The first is a county heat map and the second is the specific specie count by county.
It’s no surprise that Lane County consistently has the highest counts. Ranging from the coast to the crest of the Cascades it covers ten Level IV Ecoregions. It also has the fourth highest population and fifth largest land mass of Oregon’s thirty six counties. I’m sure the avid birding population of the Eugene area also helps.
