Ag Allies - Grassland Bird Initiative "Intervale Farm Bird Sanctuary!"
July 13, 2019
This past spring, we had nesting bobolinks and savannah sparrows in our pasture. After noticing fewer bobolink calls than in years past, we wondered what was happening with their populations. We heard about Ag Allies and the Grassland Bird Initiative. Laura Suomi-Lecker of the Soil & Water Conservation Services/Ag Allies program came to our farm providing valuable advice for managing our fields for grassland birds’ breeding success.
