We Loggerhead Shrikes are in trouble, too

Loggerhead Shrike

I don't know that those little guys--the Le Conte's Sparrow and Rufous Hummingbird who just posted--realize that being on a list means they're actually in trouble. I eat both those kinds of birds for lunch (and breakfast, and dinner too!), and I really want them both to thrive so I have plenty to eat. But my species is in big trouble, too. If you're a person with more money than I have, please support bird conservation. If you want to know what YOU can do to help us all, please read 101 Ways to Help Birds. And read the US Fish and Wildlife Service's publication with the Bird Species of Conservation Concern.
