Protecting Bicknell's Thrush

A Bicknell's Thrush

Bicknell's Thrush

One of America’s rarest songbirds is the Adirondack’s own Bicknell’s Thrush, which is being considered for endangered species status by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

The Nature Conservancy’s Adirondack Chapter, Adirondack Council, Audubon New York, Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Vermont Center for Ecostudies and the Wildlife Conservation Society, joined together in 2007 to create a fund for habitat protection on Hispaniola that will help ensure a reliable winter home for Bicknell’s thrush.
