The Northern Arizona Audubon Society welcomed a special guest speaker on Wednesday, Nov. 20, when Troy Corman addressed the group at the Sedona Public Library. The discussion covered the migration and breeding patterns of birds in Arizona and the changes in those patterns being observed from year to year.Bald eagle populations, especially along the Verde River, seemed healthy, even as climate change is altering the migration habits of other birds in Northern Arizona.

Corman is credited as the primary author and editor of the “Arizona Breeding Bird Atlas,” a comprehensive volume cataloguing the distribution of birds in the state that involved a seven-year data collection project from 1993 to 2000. Corman was also the founding president of the Arizona Field Ornithologists, which conducts field expeditions and avian surveys.

Corman discussed the changes in numbers and mentioned numerous bird species that have increased not only in Yavapai County, but also across the state, using data from the annual Christmas Bird Count, a census of birds conducted in the early winter by amateur birdwatchers under the administration of the National Audubon Society.
