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.

The Kaua‘i Forest Bird Recovery Project is using crowdsourcing to raise funds for rat traps to help protect endangered native birds

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Dec 27, 2014

After quickly reaching its goal of raising $10,000 to help save endangered birds on Kauai, the first-of-its-kind, crowdsourced fundraiser by the Kaua‘i Forest Bird Recovery Project has now doubled down on its ambitions while reaching people from as far away as Bulgaria and India.

Lisa "Cali" Crampton, project coordinator of the Kaua‘i Forest Bird Recovery Project, had little success in the past raising money through grants to buy "humane" traps to kill three species of rats that prey on Kauai's rare, colorful and endangered birds and their eggs in the Ala­kai Wilderness Preserve within Kauai's Na Pali Kona Forest Reserve.
