Common US Birds in Decline

Some of my colleagues at Audubon have recently conducted an analysis of over 40 years worth of Christmas Bird Count and Breeding Bird Survey data to identify common birds that have experienced large declines. These birds are not endangered, but have declined by more than 50% over that time period. A new website gives more info on these birds and what can be done to help them.

A press conference today attracted a lot of media attention to this issue, with over 160 stories posted by newspapers so far.
