The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) published a final rule removing the black-capped vireo from the federal list of endangered and threatened species. The delisting decision is based on USFWS’s determination that the primary threats to the black-capped vireo have been reduced or managed to the point that the species has recovered. The delisting takes effect on May 16, 2018. The delisting decision does not alter the black-capped vireo status as a protected species under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
