As of June 10, we are now within the safe dates of all species. Yes, that means all possible codes can be used with needing to refer to your Maine Breeding Birds Safe Dates Chart, hurray!

No more charts! No more paper cuts flipping to page 20 of your volunteer handbook! This is a good time to brush up on your Acceptable Breeding Behavior Codes by Species though.

We spend a lot of time talking about getting breeding confirmations, but possible and probable codes are very important too. Please take a minute to read Maine Bird Atlas Coordinator Glen Mittelhausers excellent blog post "The Importance of Entering Breeding Codes on Checklists."
