Monitoring to Conserve Midwestern Birds
This revised Plan provides an updated analysis of the population trends and conservation status of all 450 landbirds in the continental U.S. and Canada and documents widespread declines among these species—a troubling indicator of the health of landbird populations and their ecosystems. Nearly 20% of U.S. and Canadian landbird species are currently on a trajectory toward endangerment or extinction in the absence of conservation action.
The 2016 Plan Revision is presented in two parts. It begins by:
The second half of the 2016 Plan Revision highlights Migratory Bird Joint Ventures, their conservation challenges and successes, and the continental Watch List species for which each JV shares responsibility. It also provides important information on Watch List species, such as population trends, loss, and extinction risk to aid in prioritizing and carrying out conservation actions across the full life-cycle of these birds.
