Ferruginous Hawk

Status

Ferruginous HawkThe Ferruginous Hawk is currently listed as an endangered animal under the Alberta Wildlife Act. The species was down-listed from the 1991 provincial Red List, to the Blue List in 1996 because although a substantial decline in their range has occurred, hawk numbers had stabilized and the population was apparently not threatened by chance events exacerbated by small population size. The Alberta Natural Heritage Information Centre ranks the Ferruginous Hawk as S4 meaning the species is apparently secure in the province.
