This unprecedented, continent-wide analysis demonstrates the power of people to understand conservation needs — and to make conservation happen. The Report, released today, shows that of the 1, bird species that occur in North America, one third are on the Watch List, which identifies high-risk species.

In particular, birds that depend on oceans and tropical forests are of most concern due to severe threats to their habitats, restricted ranges, and declining populations. More than half of our seabirds are on the Watch List. They are threatened by ocean pollution, over-fishing, energy extraction, invasive species on islands that depredate nests, and climate change.

Other habitats with high percentages of species at-risk include coasts, aridlands, and grasslands. Grassland birds are facing some of the steepest population declines of any group, putting many species on the WatchList. As a result, grassland birds such as the Chestnut-collared Longspur cling to fragmented remnants of their original habitats. Despite this grim outlook, numerous efforts are underway by the Conservancy and its partners to protect and restore grasslands and implement appropriate habitat management, in places such as the Flint Hills of Kansas and Oklahoma.

Aridland birds, those of our deserts, sagebrush, and chaparral, are also faring poorly and in need of urgent conservation attention. The tropical and subtropical forests of Mexico and the very southern U. As a result of this and other factors, more than half of Mexican tropical forest resident bird species are on the Watch List, such as the enigmatic Gray-throated Chat. In addition, they harbor many migratory species from the U.

The Wood Thrush is the perfect example of such a species, a bird that is equally at home in the deciduous forests of Ontario or New York during one season and foraging in amid the ruins of the Calakmul Mayan Archaeological Site in another.

Birds truly connect our continent, which means that habitat loss and degradation in one country equally threaten species in all the countries across North America when not done sustainably. The Conservancy is actively working to protect these important forested habitats in many parts of Mexico, including the critically important Maya Forest region extending south from the Yucatan Peninsula, across Belize, into northern Guatemala. In spite of these alarming numbers, we know that when people push for positive change, bird conservation succeeds.

Birder's Conservation Handbook: 100 North American Birds at Risk

One hundred years ago, passionate wildlife supporters encouraged national leaders to invest in bird conservation by signing the Migratory Bird Treaty and putting an end to market hunting. Investments in wetlands have paid off, too; the Duck Stamp Act reflected commitments by hunters to protect waterfowl habitat, a key accomplishment that has created a strong positive outlook for ducks, herons, egrets, and many more birds. Virgin Islands, and Mexico. Just as waterfowl migrate among all three countries and back again, conservation must be guided by the birds, rather than borders.

As we celebrate the th anniversary of first Migratory Bird Treaty, birds once again need our help. Fortunately, there are many ways to support strong bird populations. Corporations can emerge as sustainability leaders, making healthy lands and waters part of their long-term growth strategies. Federal, state, and local governments can use science to inform and guide policy, supporting strong conservation practices. Even our individual actions can have far-reaching positive impacts. Simple acts like choosing sustainably created products, preventing bird collisions with windows on our houses and office buildings, and contributing bird sighting data to international databases like eBird can add up to a powerful continental force for bird conservation.
