After 3 years of work, a consortium led by BirdLife International and financed by the European Commission published today the new European Red List of Birds. The publication will set the base for European conservation and policy work to be done in the coming years. The Red List, that follows the IUCN methodology, is widely recognised as the most authoritative and objective system for assessing the extinction risk of species.
The next international conference of the European Bird Census Council (EBCC) — Bird Numbers 2016 — will be held from September 5-10, 2016, at the University of Halle (Saale) in Germany, hosted by Dachverband Deutscher Avifaunisten (DDA). The conference is themed "Birds in a changing world".

There is presently great concern about local, regional and global loss of species. A recent study published in Ornis Svecica examined those breeding species and subspecies ("species") of birds that either established themselves or went extinct in Sweden in 1850 - 2009.
