Don’t let the Tricolored Blackbird go the way of the Passenger Pigeon

June 8th, 2012 · by Garrison Frost

One of the most amazing things about the Tricolored Blackbird is its massive breeding colonies. Unfortunately, this behavior sometimes put them at great risk. Just ask the Passenger Pigeon and the Caroline Parakeet, which were also known for creating huge breeding colonies, and are both extinct. But the Tricolored Blackbird is still with us, and you can help keep it that way. Click here to see how you can help:

    I don’t want the tricolored blackbird to go the way
    of the passenger pigeon and the Carolina parakeet.
    I’ll pass on a couple or more of designer coffees in
    order to give some money to Audubon for the pro-
    tection and preservation of the tricolored blackbird. Let them thrive!

    I think that cooperation between the farmers and the groups that support wildlife will lead to an answer that is good for all concerned.

    Agri-business has had it’s way for a long time. Surely a way can be found to preserve the sites prefered by the tricolored blackbird for it’s preservation, and still grow enough money-making products to keep the “farmers” sufficiently affluent.
