of Conservation Concern
A number of prioritized lists of birds of conservation
concern have been published in conservation plans for breeding birds
of North America including those provided by the DoD
Partners in Flight.
The DoD-MAPS network monitoring and research focuses
on a suite of ten birds of conservation and management concern. An executive
report from provided The Institute for Bird Populations in 2003
summarized the managment approach for these species.
Many plans fall under the umbrella of
the The U.S. North American Bird Conservation
Initiative (NABCI) Committee and can be downloaded from their website:
