Making available information relevant to managing Nevada’s birds and their habitats is one of GBBO’s most important services to Nevada’s bird conservation community. This part of our website is designated to provide online resources to a diverse group of stakeholders, such as Nevada’s resource management agencies, private landowners, researchers, and the interested public. Please see our FAQs for more information about data access.
If you are a GBBO agency partner, you can also access our Secure Data page with a login provided to you by GBBO. If you are a funding partner and don't have a login/password, please email GBBO and request one.
Users of this page are encouraged to check in occasionally, as we make progress in building an archive of maps, data summaries, analysis results, and online documents

Summary of Conservation Priority Bird Species in Nevada
This file summarizes conservation priority species in the Nevada region. It lists the status of the species in each major bird conservation planning document that is available to GBBO at the time of this version. Only species that received the equivalent of a "moderate to high" ranking of conservation concern in at least one of the plans were included. Any other rankings were only listed if they were in disagreement with other plans. No entry means that the species received no ranking under that plan.
Standard AOU Species Codes for North American Birds
The so-called Alpha codes are 4-letter codes that are commonly used by bird banders and bird surveyors. Because there are so many species in North America, these codes are not always intuitively derived. We therefore urge all banders and surveyors to look up the current code of any species recorded this way.
A complete list of current Alpha species codes and scientific names is maintained by the Institute for Bird Populations and is updated on a regular basis.
