Painted RedstartDeclines in many bird populations here in Arizona and across the nation have led to concern about the future of migratory and resident birds. The reasons for the declines are complex. They include loss and fragmentation of the birds’ habitat where they breed, spend the winter, and migrate.

In 1990, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation brought together federal, state and local government agencies; foundations; conservation groups; businesses and the academic community to form a program to address the problem. Thus, Partners in Flight was created as a voluntary, international coalition dedicated to “keeping common birds common.” The Arizona Working Group of Partners in Flight (APIF) developed a plan (see below) as part of the national Partners in Flight effort. APIF has since been incorporated under a larger umbrella known as the Arizona Bird Conservation Initiative (ABCI).
