Recommended Posts

What’s killing the curlews? Mostly poachers, according to Boise State University researchers. Long-billed curlews (Numenius americanus) nest in the mountain West, but biologists found their population in southwest Idaho was falling.

That wasn’t true, however, in other parts of Idaho, Montana and Wyoming, where no birds had been poached. Read more in the Idaho Statesman here.
