Prairie bird’s plight could affect farmers

A prairie songbird resembling a lanky sparrow is in the early stages of being considered a threatened or endangered species by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
If the Sprague’s pipit is given that protection, it might affect the conversion of grasslands to row crops.
Carol Aron, the Fish and Wildlife biologist heading the inquiry into listing the bird, says its numbers have gone into significant decline because of habitat losses both in its summer range on the Northern Plains and Canada’s prairie provinces, and on its winter range in the Southwest and northern Mexico. Encroaching mesquite is the problem on the winter range, she says, and plowing up native grass to grow crops is the major source of habitat destruction on the summer range.
A species of grassland songbird, the Sprague’s Pipit, has declined in number by about 80 percent in the last 40 years. In the United States it lives in Minnesota, Montana, and the Dakotas: here.
