The annual State of the Birds report was released on September 9, 2014—it documents the health of bird populations across the United States. Of the more than 800 species of birds in the U.S., 233 have been placed on a Watch List in the new report. The Watch List provides an early warning system for birds that are most in danger of becoming extinct in the years ahead if significant conservation actions are not put in place to protect their populations.
