As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

CONSERVATION: Ducks, Wild Turkey, Pheasants and Quails (oh my!) are joining forces

Four of the nation’s largest wild bird conservation organizations say they have joined forces to better protect wild bird habitats for future generations.

Memphis-based Ducks Unlimited Inc. has joined with the National Wild Turkey Federation, Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with the goal of furthering sporting traditions across North America.

“By entering into this unique partnership, we will be able to reach more than 1 million conservation supporters throughout North America,” said Ducks Unlimited CEO Dale Hall, in a release. “This MOU is the first step to ensuring our hunting heritage remains strong. I look forward to working with each organization and I know that together we can accomplish great things.”
