The Center for Biological Diversity has filed a formal notice of intent to sue the  U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for not responding to its petition to grant endangered species status to the Bicknell’s thrush.  The rare songbird is only found on mountaintops in northern New England, the Adirondacks and eastern Canada during the summer, and a few Caribbean islands in winter.
