FILE - This July, 26, 2014 file photo provided by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service shows a Greater Sage Grouse at the Seedskadee National Wildlife Refuge in Wyoming. A legislative rider in Congress’ $1.1 trillion spending bill would delay protections for the wide-ranging Western bird that’s been on a collision course with the oil and gas industry. The Obama administration faced a September 2015 deadline to propose protections for greater sage grouse. But the spending package agreed to late Tuesday, Dec. 9, 2014 by Democrat and Republican leaders prevents the administration from spending any money next year on rules to protect the ground-dwelling bird.

FILE -- This undated file photo from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service shows a portion of the Bandon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge outside Bandon, Ore., where a 400-acre salt marsh restoration has produced hordes of mosquitoes that have tormented local residents, visiting golfers and and campers. Pressed by advocacy groups, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has dropped plans to spray chemical pesticides to kill mosquitoes breeding on the refuge. Instead, the agency will use a biological pesticide that poses less risk to the crabs, crawfish and worms that fish and wildlife depend on for food. (AP Photo/U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Roy W.
