Michigan Songbird Removed from Endangered List
Hello bird lovers! A beloved Michigan songbird has officially been taken off the endangered list.
The Kirkland's warbler was removed from the federal endangered species list, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced Tuesday.
With more than 2,300 pairs, the bird's population has more than doubled the goal set by federal and state conservation workers.
Talk about success, only 56 species have recovered enough to be removed from the federal threatened and endangered species list, which includes almost 1,500 species of animals and more than 900 plants.
According to the Lansing State Journal, despite their celebration of Kirkland's warblers recovery, conservationists work isn't over. The species still requires forest management.
