Conservation Strategy for Landbirds in Sagebrush-Steppe and Riparian Habitats of Eastern Oregon and Washington

This document has been prepared to stimulate and support an active approach to conservation of landbirds in sagebrush-steppe, riparian, and unique habitats in the Columbia Plateau and Great Basin regions of eastern Oregon and Washington. In this Version 2.1 update, the biological objectives for habitat attributes and their focal species are updated where needed based on new data. This document represents the collective efforts of individuals from multiple agencies and organizations within the Oregon-Washington Chapter of Partners in Flight. Participants included biologists and ecologists from federal and state agencies, environmental organizations, and academia in order to ensure a full range of ideas, information flow, and practicalities.
