[wisb] Re: Status of Certain Birds (No Sightings)

There is still a native population of bobwhites in WI, but, very sadly, it
isdeclining. See the Atlas map at: 
http://www.uwgb.edu/birds/wbba/species/maps/NOBO.htm

If you look in Aldo Leopold's writing, you'll see many references to
bobwhitemanagement in WI.

ECDOs are "self-introduced", as are Cattle Egrets (now, that's a fascinating
story!). And yes, you're correct, those Eurasian parids are "non-countable"
species, originating in some semi-mysterious and ongoing releases.

Bill-

What's the status of Northern Bobwhite in WI? I've heard of a few seen but
determined to be releases... And I understand we can't count those Great and
Blue Tits when they show up either.

Another species of interest would be Eurasian Collared-Dove. These exploded
across the continent from a feral population in Florida. How are they
treatedon the WI list?

Thanks much,

Trumpeter Swan
Wild Turkey
Whooping Crane

The former two have been very successful reintroductions. The latter is
ongoing.

The following species are "introduced" but not native to North America:
Mute Swan (please do not take stock in internet claims that the Mute Swan is
a native species to North America; that is about as bogus as any claim can
be).
Gray Partridge
Ring-necked Pheasant
Rock Pigeon
European Starling
House Sparrow

Occasionally someone finds a Chukar - these are game farm escapes, and have
no "established" population in WI.

Hi WiBi,
Now when I'm indisputably approaching the 200-species milestone - no smirks
please ;  ) - I became curious about the status of some birds on my list
like for example Mute Swan and Whooping Crane. I tried to research WSO's web
page but didn't find any information from there about species which are not
considered to be "wild" or are considered for example to be "introduced".
Any idea from where I can find this info?


Thanks,

Mikko, Kaukauna (Outagamie)
