    The Southwestern Willow Flycatcher Recovery Team is composed of a Technical Subgroup (pg. ii), six Implementation Subgroups (Appendix A), and a Tribal Working Group. The Technical Subgroup consists of 14 academic scientists, researchers, and resource managers with a wide range of expertise in avian biology and ecology, southwestern willow flycatcher ecology, cowbird ecology, riparian ecology, hydrology, range management, and conservation planning. The Implementation Subgroups consist of more than 200 community representatives across the Southwest including ranchers, environmental representatives, water and power interests, State and Federal land managers, and local governments. Each Implementation Subgroup is associated with a particular recovery unit (see Section IV. Recovery). The Technical Subgroup's function is to compile and review extensive scientific information and develop recovery goals, strategies and recommended actions. The role of the Implementation Subgroups is to advise the Regional Director and Technical Subgroup on the feasibility of recovery strategies and actions recommended by the Technical Subgroup, and to implement recovery actions in the United States portion of the flycatcher's geographic range.
