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.

ENDANGERED BIRDS: USU to host sage grouse summit in Salt Lake City Tuesday

SALT LAKE CITY — Utah State University will host a summit Tuesday and Wednesday to enhance conservation efforts among federal, state and private natural resource agencies for the greater sage grouse, a candidate for the Endangered Species list.

The summit will help wildlife managers collaborate in preventing the bird from becoming listed as endangered, according to Terry Messmer, professor and extension wildlife specialist at USU's S.J. and Jessie E. Quinney College of Natural Resources.

"Through this discussion, we'll hopefully be able to demonstrate the resolve of these partners in doing the right thing, not only to protect this species and its habitat, but also the communities and working landscapes which drive Utah's economy," Messmer said.
