Release of an American White Pelican
The pervasive declines among American birdlife spread well beyond the rare and threatened species; it is a crisis for almost all birds everywhere. Just 15 species of “common birds” (species that were once abundant, such as meadowlarks, juncos, blackbirds, and swallows) account for more than two-thirds of the total loss in native bird populations. Our common birds are now suffering population losses in the tens of millions— similar to the decline of the Passenger Pigeon.

We made it through 2020 with higher than ever patient numbers. In this issue, you will find more patient photos than ever before. Sadly, we also memorialize two of our own Volunteers.
