Streaked Horned Lark Egg Swapping

The Center for Natural Lands Management and its partners are using a novel technique to ensure that South Sound streaked horned larks are not becoming inbred. They are swapping eggs from lark populations in Oregon's Willamette Valley into South Sound lark nests. So far, several birds from the swapped eggs have successfully fledged. Listen to or read an NPR report on the project here.
