Corvallis, OR Abstract Tidal marshes support an array of avian species and provide essential habitat for tidal marsh specialists. Recent population declines of marsh specialists are largely attributed to habitat change, particularly in urban and suburban landscapes. The rapid geographic expansion of invasive common reed Phragmites australis throughout tidal marshes is of particular concern. Habitat structural changes of tidal marshes associated with the spread and dominance of common reed will likely have direct and indirect impacts on avian use of such sites.
A rare visitor to the County, but recorded most years, and almost certainly of feral origins.

There is, however a regular and increasing flock of moulting birds at Eemmeer in the Netherlands each summer with over birds counted recently. This is a possible source of the un-ringed Carsington bird, as well as the half dozen which turn up elsewhere in the UK at this time of year, post the moult which leaves them flightless for several weeks.
These birds appear to be mainly from feral populations in Switzerland and Germany but there is a slight chance that this moulting flock could include genuine wild birds from further east.
If the link to wild birds could be proven, birds at Eemmeer have been ringed and even satellite tagged, then there would be some possibility of genuinely wild birds occurring in the UK.Help your students understand the plot structure and characters in "The Scarlet Ibis."
