Abstract:
These data document observations of birds in the eastern Great Basin: the Sheeprock Mountains (Tooele County) and East Tintic Mountains (Tooele and Utah counties), Utah. A small number of observations were made in the valleys adjacent to these mountain ranges. Data were collected during the breeding seasons of 2016 and 2017. These data complement those in Fleishman 2019 (https://doi.org/10.2737/RDS-2019-0017), which included detections of breeding birds during fixed-radius point counts within 100 meters of the observer. The data in this data publication allow more-complete documentation of the composition and distribution of the local and regional avifauna than would be possible with the fixed-radius point-count data alone. Some birds documented in these data were detected during fixed-radius point counts but were outside the radius of the sample point (e.g., > 100 meters from the observer) or flying over the point rather than apparently using resources within the point. Others were detected opportunistically while traveling to sampling locations. The records also include juveniles, which are not included in published analyses. Data include species detected, date of detection, and, in most cases, method of detection and either coordinates or an approximate location.
