The Mid-Atlantic Integrated Assessment (MAIA) is an interagency, multi disciplinary research, monitoring and assessment program to develop high-quality scientific information on the region's natural resources: current condition, stressors, trends, and vulnerabilities. MAIA results and information are intended to satisfy a broad group of stakeholders' needs, convey important information relevant to their assessment questions and issues, and be useful in making management decisions. During the spring breeding season, more than a hundred songbird species conduct a birds-eye assessment of the Mid-Atlantic highlands to determine suitable habitat for mating and raising young. Different bird species require different habitats for food , shelter and breeding. This brochure explains that the types of birds found in an area are an indication of its ecological condition; it also demonstrates the linkages between bird communities and land use/land cover.
