This is shared by Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy Audubon at Home program for those out fortunate enough to be stewarding some grasslands. Thank you for considering our breeding birds in your management plans.
In honor of #worldmigratorybirdday tomorrow, we wanted to share our guidelines on how to support grassland birds. The image in this post can be found in our downloadable guidelines PDF (https://www.vaworkinglandscapes.org/education/resources/field-management-guidelines-for-grassland-birds/).
We get many questions from our network on how landowners and managers can support birds. We love these kinds of questions since much of our research is geared toward exploring how to conserve and support biodiversity in our region.
Did you know that #grassland and #shrubland birds are declining more than any other group of #birds? And with over 80% of Virginia's grasslands currently held in private hands, the survival and well-being of these vulnerable species depends on the decisions made by private landowners.
