The Third Finnish Breeding Bird Atlas survey was conducted in 2006–2010. The first two atlases were carried out in 1974–79 and 1986–1989. The aim of the third atlas was to examine present distributions of birds and compare them with those published in the previous atlases. The atlas data can be utilized together with other long-term bird monitoring and other environmental data to investigate changes in biodiversity. Distribution data was collected from 10 x 10 km grids (KKJ Uniform Coordinate System).

The third atlas was conducted in close co-operation with researchers and research organizations, BirdLife Finland and its member associations and, most importantly, with thousands of volunteer bird-watchers.
