New Plan to Save Birds in North America

Partners in Flight, the cooperative effort to save birds in Canada, Mexico, and the United States, has just published a new plan--Saving our Shared Birds.

Some Key findings of Saving Our Shared Birds: Partners in Flight Tri-National Vision for Landbird Conservation:

--The most imperiled birds include 44 species with very limited distributions, mostly in Mexico, including the Thick-billed Parrot and Horned Guan.
--Also of high tri-national concern are 80 tropical residents with ranges in Mexico, such as the Red-breasted Chat and Resplendent Quetzal.
--Additionally, 24 species that breed in the United States and Canada continue to warrant immediate action to prevent further declines, including Cerulean Warbler, Black Swift, and Canada Warbler.
--Forty-two common bird species have steeply declined by 50% or more in the past 40 years, including Common Nighthawk, Eastern Meadowlark and Loggerhead Shrike.

You can download a pdf of the plan here.
