Saving the Tricolored Blackbird from extinction
With the support of the Five Dollars/Five Birds campaign, Audubon California is creating new Tricolored Blackbird habitat at Merced National Wildlife Refuge. We’ve planted triticale that may attract nesting Tricolored Blackbirds. Fields are also being prepared to provide alfalfa for foraging next to the wheat that provides nesting habitat. Watch the below video to meet our new Tricolored Blackbird Conservation Program Manager and learn about what she’s doing to save this special species.
