Rapid Avian Information Locator - RAIL
The Rapid Avian Information Locator (RAIL) tool allows the user to query a specific geographic location and return a list of birds that are known to occur in that area based on the underlying data in the Avian Knowledge Network (AKN), along with a wealth of information about those birds including their conservation status and population size at various scales. The tool imports information from the Partners in Flight (PIF) Avian Conservation Assessment Database (ACAD) and the PIF Population Estimates Database, and also incorporates other supplemental information (e.g. conservation status on multiple scales, clutch size, bird weight, size and diet, primary habitat, photos and range maps) that might be helpful for permitting and making conservation and management decisions for birds.
