Migratory Bird Project Support: Monitoring, Assessment, Conservation: This announcement is for U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), Region 2, FY 2008 Migratory Bird Project Support for the conservation of bird species. Special emphasis will be placed on bird species listed in USFWS conservation and management priorities (e.g., regional USFWS Birds of Conservation Concern 2002, Focal Species list, Birds of Management Concern). Implementing national, regional, flyway, Bird Conservation Region, and state-level bird conservation plans (e.g., Partners in Flight North American Landbird Conservation Plan (http://www.partnersinflight.org), U.S. Shorebird Conservation Plan (http://shorebirdplan.fws.gov), North American Waterbird Conservation Plan (http://www.waterbirdconservation.org), North American Waterfowl Management Plan (http://birdhabitat.fws.gov/NAWMP/nawmphp.htm), and State Wildlife Action Plans) are among the USFWS's highest priorities. As justification for Single Source Determination, in accordance with Department of the Interior guidance (505 DM 2.14)USFWS Region 2 provides notice of its intent to make a single-source award in the amount of $75,000 via a cooperative agreement with Stephen F. Austin State University (University) for the support of an investigation into the environmental availability of lead and its effects on mottled duck populations on the Texas Chenier Plain National Wildlife Refuge Complex (Complex). This project will create a cooperative effort among faculty of the University, USFWS R2 Refuge Division, and USFWS R2 Division of Migratory Birds. The goal of this investigation is to determine the environmental sources and availability of lead on the Complex, evaluate the impact of lead exposure (relatively high based on recent investigations) on populations of mottled ducks (USFWS Focal Species), and develop recommendations to remediate the availability and impacts of lead on mottled ducks and other waterbirds on the Complex. The University is uniquely positioned to provide the principal investigators for the project in collaboration with USFWS personnel. The University is the nearest natural resource program to the study area; thus, facilitating field investigations. University personnel have cooperated on previous successful research efforts on the Complex and have training in environmental contaminants and avian species. The University supports the specialized equipment needed to successfully complete the detailed analyses. These factors together provide the USFWS with a cost-sharing opportunity to address its migratory bird management issues with significanly less staff and funding that would be possible otherwise. There is no Full Announcement associated with this notice of intent to make a single-source award.
