Migratory Bird Program

The Migratory Bird Program leads bird conservation through initiatives such as:

The Migratory Bird Program works to promote and achieve successful bird conservation through close intra-agency coordination; building partnerships with other federal and state agencies, tribes, and private individuals; building connections with bird conservation entities in other Western Hemisphere nations; and through large-scale cooperative partnerships and efforts such as the Western Hummingbird Partnership, Migratory Bird Joint Ventures, and the initiatives listed above.

It is estimated that over 600 (70%) of the 882 species of native landbirds that breed in Canada, the U.S. and Mexico utilize flowers for insects and may occasionally pollinate. About 43% of these species are migratory, highlighting the critical need for international conservation. For more information about the migratory bird program visit: http://www.fws.gov/birds/
