MANEM_seabirds Point locations of seabird colonies in the Northeast (NY through Maine) with nesting count data up to 1996 (count data is extremely suspect though and shouldn't be relied on as accurate).

MANEM_waders Point locations of wading bird colonies in the Northeast (NY through Maine) with nesting count data up to 1996 (count data is extremely suspect though and shouldn't be relied on as accurate). Multiple points per island, depending on number of years worth of data. See metadata in ArcCatalog. Data from Mid-Atlantic/New England/Maritimes Waterbird Conservation Plan. See ...\gomp\waterbird\MANEM subdirectory for more information. 1996
