C.B.D. Petitions U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service for Emergency Listing of Tricolored Blackbird as Endangered under E.S.A.
Today the Center for Biological Diversity petitioned the Secretary of the Interior to list the tricolored blackbird as endangered under the Endangered Species Act. The Center cited the recent steep population decline as documented in the most recent statewide surveys conducted in 2008, 2011, and 2014 as evidence for the need for federal protection.
