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.

State getting millions for bird habitat

By ASSOCIATED PRESS



LANSING, MI (AP)-- Michigan is getting a share of $61 million in funding to protect, restore and enhance wetlands and other areas that are migratory bird habitats. 

The Michigan Upper Peninsula Coastal Wetland Project III is getting $1 million to target habitat gaps and habitat management limitations. And a Michigan project involving the U.P.'s Garden Peninsula is also getting $1 million to help protect land.


The Migratory Bird Conservation Commission recently approved $54.7 million to protect, restore, and enhance more than 200,000 acres of habitat in the United States, Mexico and Canada. It also approved nearly $6.6 million related to land acquisitions.
