Bird Conservation Research Act - Requires the Director of the Fish and Wildlife Service to develop a ten-year comprehensive plan for the conservation of migratory nongame birds in the Western Hemisphere to facilitate the detection of trends in bird population declines at the earliest possible time and to enable a determination of the causes of such trends. Requires submission of the developed plan to the President and the Congress. Expresses the sense of the Congress that the President should seek a declaration by appropriate international organizations of a World Decade of Ornithology, to begin on January 1, 1991. Makes Federal Government equipment for studying bird migration available to Federal and non-Federal ornithologists. Requires the Director to support: (1) research on the impact of brown-headed cowbirds, bronzed cowbirds, and shiny cowbirds on populations of native songbirds; and (2) development of effective methods for conserving songbird populations without endangering the continued existence of native cowbird populations.

No summary available.
House Democratic Caucus Summary
The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.
So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.
We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
