U.S. Climate Legislation Presents Golden Opportunity to Conserve Birds
6 years ago

One of the highest priorities of the 111th Congress will be passing legislation to curb global warming by placing a cap on heat-trapping carbon emissions. A vote in the House of Representatives is expected this year on a bill currently being developed. To ensure that habitat conservation is enhanced by the legislation, American Bird Conservancy has been working with the Forest Climate Working Group to have private forests included in the global warming bill by creating incentives for projects that sequester carbon, and providing funding to mitigate impacts to forests caused by rapidly shifting climate zones.

Survey Finds Rare Hummer in New Areas, Locates First Ever Nests, Identifies Females
6 years ago

The results of an American Bird Conservancy-funded study of the distribution and nesting of the globally endangered Esmeraldas Woodstar have just been released by Fundación Jocotoco, with some encouraging news. This tiny hummingbird, barely bigger than a bumblebee, is endemic to the dry forests of the coastal mountains of central and northern Ecuador, where it has a tiny range, and where the lack of suitable habitat makes its distribution extremely fragmented.  The researchers found new sites as far as 62 miles northward of the main known nesting area.  They also found the nest of the species for the first time ever and identified females, which up to now had been incorrectly identified.

Appalachian Mountains Joint Venture Helps Priority Birds in Tennessee
6 years ago

West Coast fishermen are voluntarily taking measures to stop the accidental killing of seabirds, which can be snared on the hooks of long-line fishing boats. The Fishing Vessel Owners' Association (FVOA), which represents longlining captains in the halibut and sablefish fisheries along the West Coast, has instructed its members to use streamer lines when longline fishing in Washington, Oregon, and California waters.

Appalachian Mountains Joint Venture Helps Priority Birds in Tennessee
6 years ago

Bird conservation in the Appalachian Mountains received a big boost recently with the completion of a significant conservation acquisition in east Tennessee's Cumberland Plateau. The newly-acquired lands include over 120,000 acres of hardwood forest, rugged mountains, and pristine streams spread over three different areas. These forests link to an additional 66,000 acres of public lands, creating a total of 300 square miles of protected habitat for birds and wildlife.

Feds: Endangered decision for sage grouse could be pushed to summer

Associated Press - December 19, 2008 8:04 PM ET

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Federal wildlife officials say a recommendation on whether sage grouse belong on the endangered species list could be delayed until next summer.

The number of sage grouse has dropped off in recent decades in the 11 Western states where they still are found, including Nevada.

The biggest impacts have come from livestock grazing, oil and gas drilling, wildfires and residential development.

Group plans suit over Cape Hatteras bird habitat

 

In a legal version of an instant replay, the three parties who challenged a piping plover habitat designation in Cape Hatteras National Seashore five years ago have notified the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that they intend to file another lawsuit to stop the latest version of the designation.

In a Dec. 2 notice of intent to sue, the Cape Hatteras Access Preservation Alliance - a consortium of off-road-access groups and Dare and Hyde counties - contends that the rule that went into effect Oct. 21 violated the Endangered Species Act and other federal environmental laws.

The notice also said the designation that established more than 2,000 acres in the seashore as critical habitat will cause harm to the parties and the people who rely on the seashore for their livelihood and recreation.

More Good News for Kirtlandís Warblers
6 years ago

21 August 2008 – With a population numbering about 1700 breeding pairs, the Kirtland’s Warbler is one of North America’s most endangered songbirds. The core of its population is restricted to a fairly small area of suitable Jack pine habitat in lower Michigan, where intensive management and recovery efforts have been underway for several decades. These efforts are paying off as evidenced by substantial population increases locally. Success is also being signaled by the recent discovery of small but significant breeding populations in at least two new sites in Wisconsin and eastern Ontario. This summer, Wisconsin biologists reported the first successful nesting for the state, following the discovery of a small population there last year; select this link to read their news release. Meanwhile, birds returned again this year to nest successfully at CFB Petawawa, Ontario, following last year’s first documented nesting for Canada. Perhaps even more amazingly, one of the three Canadian birds had been originally banded in February 2007, while on its wintering grounds in the Bahamas!
