Ken- Regarding the cowbirds, we have been trapping them at Tecopa, China Ranch, and Shoshone with funding from the BLM and USFWS. We began in 2007, removed 30 female cowbirds. This year it was up around 50. So, at this time of the year, the flocks you would see may come from other places, but the decrease may also be because less cowbirds are being raised on the Amargosa River.
