An Excerpt from the Executive Summary:
This Draft Grassland Bird Conservation Plan is a collaborative effort
of California Partners in Flight. It has been developed to guide
conservation policy and action on behalf of grassland habitats and
birds. The geographic scope of this plan is the distribution of
annual and native perennial grasslands in the state, which are found
predominantly along the coast and in California’s Great Central
Valley. The plan has focused on data concerning seven focal grassland
bird species that are dependent on these habitat types. A primary
finding of this plan, and therefore its most important recommendation,
is the paucity of data concerning grassland bird species and the
need to collect basic information concerning species distribution,
productivity and survival before extensive conservation recommendations
can be made.
