This fall, the streaked horned lark was added to the endangered species list.</p><p><br />The bird prefers open habitat, which has been declining, so it's showing up on agricultural land. Typically, finding an endangered species on your land would prohibit any disturbance to the area. But in this case, an exemption will not penalize farmers who find the lark on their property.</p> Thu, 26 Dec 2013 01:38:18 +0000 Angela Kellner 5411 at http://klcc.org Oregon Farmers Can Help Threatened Bird
