Biologist Adrian Wolf searches the ground for something camouflaged in the dry prairie grass. Then he spots it: a baby streaked horned lark.
Wolf’s hands tremble as he puts a tiny silver identification band on its leg.
“I have an endangered species little life in my hand,” he says, and then places the bird back in its nest.
Only about 2,000 streaked horned larks are left on the planet. Wolf is trying to prevent the native Northwest songbirds from going extinct. But that’s not an easy task considering the dangers nearby.
