Loggerhead Shrike

Status

Loggerhead ShrikeThe Loggerhead Shrike was classified as a Red List species in 1991 based on the belief that there were probably fewer than 500 breeding pairs in the province, and that populations were likely declining.  In a more recent review of the status of Alberta Wildlife the species was placed on the Yellow List of species that are not currently at risk, but for which there is concern about long-term decline in numbers.  This change in designation was made because the provincial population was larger than previously thought.  The species is ranked as S3 by the Alberta Natural Heritage Information Centre, because of its restricted and local distribution in the province.
