Subject: [birders] Kirtland's Warbler inter-agency MOU

One of the members of this list has expressed interest in seeing the Memorandum of Understanding signed by the Michigan DNR, the U.S. Forest Service, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that binds them to ongoing Kirtland's Warbler management efforts. The MOU can be found at:

The Kirtland's Warbler Breeding Range Conservation Plan can be found at:

In the for what it's worth department, both Wisconsin and Ontario have similar plans.
