Southwest Region, August 16, 2006
Print Friendly Version
On August 16 and 17, staff from the Arlington Field Office met with representatives of the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge and Fort Sill Military Reservation, to discuss the current status of the endangered black-capped vireo in Oklahoma.  Arlington biologists gave a presentation on the recently completed science report on the status and threats to the black-capped vireo, which will be used for the ongoing 5-year review of the species.  Following the meeting, participants toured the refuge to look at black-capped vireo habitat and discuss management needs for long term viability.  The following day, biologists from the Arlington Field Office met with Fort Sill staff to discuss issues at the military facility and tour vireo nesting areas.  The black-capped vireo population in Oklahoma exists in three populations, with the two major populations occurring at Fort Sill and Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge.
