Saving Songbirds

Songbirds fly in and out of our lives, enchanting us with their colorful plumage and melodies. Warblers, orioles and bobolinks – these perching birds are familiar sights to New Englanders. But the population of many songbird species is plummeting, and the birds face serious threats to their survival.

Support for Saving Songbirds is provided by The Butler Foundation
