    Description

    Bird conservation plans represent one of the pillars of the National Partners in Flight (PIF) bird conservation strategy known as the Flight Plan. The Flight Plan provides the framework for bird conservation plans that, in turn, set conservation priorities and specific objectives for bird populations and habitat for each state or eco-region in the nation. Many of California?s birds and other wildlife depend upon coniferous forests. In 1998, the California PIF partners identified a need for a comprehensive bird conservation plan for the coniferous forests of California. In order to develop the plan, initial meetings focused on identifying the focal bird species and categorizing the forested habitats that were perceived as most integral to completing the plan. Responsibility for drafting several of the more important chapters was delegated to Forest Service and Point Reyes Bird Observatory (PRBO) staff and, later, to the Klamath Bird Observatory; there were advantages and disadvantages to each method. Eight conservation objectives included within the plan are described and briefly discussed; and six implementation tasks are identified.
