Speak up for California's Tricolored Blackbirds - Audubon California | GarryRogers Biosphere News | Scoop.it

Responding to an alarming drop in the rare bird’s numbers, the California Fish and Game Commission this Wednesday will consider an emergency listing of the Tricolored Blackbird under the California Endangered Species Act. A statewide survey completed this summer shows a 44 percent decline in Tricolored Blackbirds since 2011. Audubon California is in favor of an emergency listing, but is also committed to continuing our partnerships with the agricultural industry.
