Streaked Horned Lark Recovery

The streaked horned lark (Eremophila alpestris strigata) is a ground-nesting songbird that occurs in open habitats of western Oregon and Washington.  In October 2013, the streaked horned lark was listed as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act.

The recovery process for the streaked horned lark is supported by three documents:

The Draft Recovery Plan describes the recovery strategy, recovery criteria, and site-specific management actions necessary to achieve recovery. The appendix to the recovery plan lists potential core and matrix sites where recovery can be implemented.

The Biological Report summarizes the best available scientific information regarding the biology and ecology of the lark and assessment of threats to the species.

The Recovery Implementation Strategy details the particular near-term activities needed to implement the recovery actions identified in the recovery plan.
