An Excerpt from the Executive Summary:
This Oak Woodland 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 oak woodland habitats and wildlife. The plan has focused on data concerning bird species that are dependent on oak woodlands, but conservation recommendations have broad applicability for all oak woodland habitats and, if implemented, would benefit many oak woodland species.
